According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, the Charlotte Bobcats are set to give Paul Silas a one-year extension:
The Charlotte Bobcats are finalizing a one-year contract extension with Paul Silas that will keep him as coach through the 2011-12 season, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
After replacing Larry Brown on Dec. 22, Silas has gone 15-12 as Bobcats coach and beaten the Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers in the past week. The Bobcats are 24-31 overall and 1½ games behind the surging Indiana Pacers for the eight playoff seed in the Eastern Conference.
The Bobcats have certainly shown much more life under Silas than they did under Larry Brown this season, and their decisive win over the Lakers was something of a statement game for Charlotte. Silas has done a wonderful job in his first 27 games with the Bobcats. Now we’ll get to see what he’ll be able to do over the course of a full season.
