Paul Silas lets son coach Bobcats
Stephen Silas is his father's top assistant. This will mark the fifth time he has coached the team this season. Twice he took over after his father was ejected, while he coached the team for games against the Nets on March 9 and Toronto on March 17.
Paul Silas said his son is going to be a head coach in the NBA and this will be good experience for him, especially with the Bobcats (7-38) out of playoff contention.
Paul Silas said Don Nelson did the same thing with current Sacramento coach Keith Smart, when he was the head coach at Golden State.
