Silas to get contract extension

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, Bobcats interim coach Paul Silas may be getting the term “interim” lifted from his title.

Per Wojnarowski, Silas and the Bobcats are working on a 1-year extension. Silas has turned the Bobcats around, changing the team from a plodding team that struggled to score points to a running, free flowing offense that beat the Celtics and Lakers within the last week. The Bobcats are now in the playoff hunt, jostling with the Indiana Pacers for the final playoff spot.
