Bobcats: Coach Paul Silas not returning next year


CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The Charlotte Bobcats have announced that coach Paul Silas won't be back following the worst season in NBA history.

Team spokesman Josh Rosen confirmed the decision Monday. Silas just completed the final year of his contract.

Charlotte finished 7-59 for the worst winning percentage in league history (.106).

The 68-year-old Silas told The Associated Press late in the year that he wanted to "see things through" and coach one more season.

It's unclear who'll replace Silas, who leaves with a 32-88 at Charlotte.

The Bobcats were last in the league in scoring and shooting percentage and lost 22 games by 20 or more points.
