Paul Silas Officially Done with Charlotte Bobcats


With the Charlotte Bobcats finishing 7-59, equaling the worst win percentage in NBA history (.106), they have decided not to renew coach Paul Silas' contract.

"We have been talking internally about what is best for us going forward," Bobcats president of basketball operations Rod Higgins told the Associated Press. "The record kind of speaks for itself. When you look at the youthfulness of this roster ... we just all felt collectively that the change was something we wanted to do at this time."

Silas, 68, originally said he would "see things through" if he wanted to return next year. However, now the decision has been made. For Silas, he isn't surprised by it.

"I'm ok with that. I have had a very successful career coaching and playing and it's time to move on."

Silas finishes with a not-so-good record overall with the team, going 32-88. Silas also announced that he will retire from coaching. According to the Associated Press report, he was also offered a position on the staff by owner Michael Jordan.

Cleary, this team is rebuilding and now this is one of the many moves Jordan is going to go through with this off-season.
