Silas Extension Announcement Expected At Noon Today
The Bobcats have called a noon press conference today where they're expected to announce a contract extension for interim head coach Paul Silas.
A source confirmed Tuesday night that the team and coach had been in discussions about taking the interim tag off and giving the 67-year old Silas a contract through the 2011-12 season. Since taking over for Larry Brown on Dec. 22, Silas has led the Bobcats to a 15-13 record.
Both Silas and team executive Rod Higgins will be at the press conference.

Kevin, that is not premature. Is a 1 year contract and I'm sure it's for a very reasonable price. With a possible lockout ahead, it's a very good and safe move. Also, there are not too many options avaliable, that are "cost-beneficial" to this team. So far things have worked fine with Silas. Why go for a more expensive coach, that would require a long term contract and it will be a gamble. This is one of the smartest decision this office has made so far.
