If it turns out Larry Brown isn't a foregone conclusion to coach the Charlotte Bobcats, then another guy with Carolina ties would love the opportunity. They wouldn't even have to fly Paul Silas in for an interview according to the Charlotte Observer.
Former Charlotte Hornets coach Silas lives in the Lake Norman area, and he calls coaching the Bobcats his "dream job.'' He interviewed a year ago for the position Sam Vincent ultimately got.
With Vincent fired, Silas would like Bobcats managing partner Michael Jordan to revisit him as an option. Silas says the Bobcats need a veteran presence and a known figure in the community. He fits both descriptions.
