FORUM New Orleans, LA (Sports Network) - Paul Silas and the Cleveland Cavaliers are still in search of their first road win of the season, as they travel to New Orleans to face the Hornets. Silas coached the Hornets for five seasons, but was fired just two days after the team was eliminated from the 2003 playoffs with a Game 6 loss at home to Philadelphia. It was the first time since 2000 that the Hornets failed to move past the first round of the playoffs. Silas, the Hornets' career leader in coaching victories, accepted an offer to become the Cavaliers' head coach in June. The Cavaliers are 0-8 as the visitor this year and have dropped 29 straight road games dating back to last season. Their last road win occurred on January 12, 2003 at Seattle. Cleveland has dropped three straight overall and is coming off a 92-83 loss in Atlanta on Saturday. Zydrunas Ilgauskas paced Cleveland with 21 points and 10 boards. Ricky Davis chipped in 16 points and LeBron James netted 15 for the Cavaliers, who have dropped five of their last seven contests. Davis was originally expected to sit out tonight for unspecified reasons. However, Silas, who also coached the guard when he played for the Charlotte Hornets, changed his mind and will let Davis play in New Orleans.

By Mark Duncan, AP Paul Silas "This is a very important day in the history of the Cavaliers franchise," owner Gordon Gund said. "With Paul Silas as the Cavaliers' new coach, we believe we have found the best coach for this team. We couldn't be more satisfied with the result of our search." The 59-year-old Silas was chosen over former New York Knicks coach Jeff Van Gundy. Terms of Silas' deal were not immediately available. (
Extractions: By DAN PATTISON (DENVER) The ABA's best kept secret is San Antonio's guard James Silas. Living in obscurity is a way of life for him. The 6-1, 185-pound guard was a two-time All-America at Stephen F. Austin. Stephen F. Austin? No one is sure yet whether that is a college or someone who just died at the Alamo. It hardly rings a bell like a UCLA, Indiana, Maryland, Kentucky, North Carolina, etc. But while Silas was there, the little NAIA Nacogdoches, Texas school was a power. His senior year, Stephen F. Austin was 29-1 and he averaged 30.7 points per outing. "No one heard of Stephen F. Austin even though we had a good team," Silas pointed out. "I think scouts should look to NAIA schools more. "There are good players in the NAIA who don't even get a chance. Coming out of the NAIA hurts a guy. If you have a big name like a Travis Grant or Elmore Smith (both former Kentucky State stars), it doesn't hurt you. But it has hurt others. There is no recognition. The bigger schools get the ink and television exposure. I thought I was as good as anyone I read about. I always thought I was as good as the big college guards. Now, I'm getting my chance to prove it." But playing with the Spurs in the ABA, Silas is back where he started living in obscurity. The ABA has no television exposure and hardly captures the national headlines. The only headlines it has corralled lately is the sinking or staying afloat of the Virginia franchise after three other franchises folded this season.
Extractions: NEW YORK (AP) Paul Silas either just won the jackpot of coaching jobs or he set himself up for a big fall. Which way it comes out will depend on LeBron James. For all James' talent and all his millions of dollars, he is still an 18-year-old stepping into a man's world, a high school player with no concept of defense, a big guard who isn't ready to handle that role in the NBA. James has been hyped as part Magic Johnson, part Michael Jordan. Toss in a little Kobe Bryant and Larry Bird and that about covers the ground for the expectations on James when he dons a Cleveland Cavaliers uniform next season as the NBA's top draft pick. Saviors sell tickets, and they're going fast in Cleveland. In the gold and green "LeBron James" magazine, a slick $9.95 "collector's edition," no less an authority than Bill Walton gushes that James could one day be in the company of Wilt Chamberlain, Oscar Robertson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. If James, who's already signed a $90 million deal with Nike, lives up to all that, Silas will join the ranks of other coaching geniuses who have had the grand fortune of working with truly great players. But it's a two-sided proposition. If the prospect goes bust or the team doesn't mesh, the coach suffers.

Extractions: articles : Funeral Homes and the Late James Silas Funeral Homes and the Late James Silas He is probably the only pro basketball player in history who wants to get into the funeral home business, but what would you expect from a guy whose teammates call him The Late James Silas. The nickname actually has nothing to do with his off court investments. It's just that Silas, on the court, always seems to be at his best late in the game when the outcome is on the line. So many times he has taken control of a contest in the final quarter, either pumping in a jump shot or driving and then passing oft to a teammate for a basket. He is, as the Spirits' Don Chaney says, one of the best one-on-one players in the game. "He's our late-game offense," explains San Antonio coach Bob Bass. "We don't call Si's play early in the game because we like to keep everyone involved. But when it gets down to the end he is almost certain to hit the basket or get it to someone else who is open for a good shot." Silas, a 6-1 guard who blossomed into an All Star after being waived several years ago by Houston of the National Basketball Association, had to be practically badgered into calling his own play and taking the clutch shots.

The deal was being finalized Sunday, according to two sources with knowledge of the talks who spoke to the Associated Press on the condition of anonymity.

The Cavaliers have the No. 1 pick in the upcoming draft and have said they will select James, the 18-year-old high school phenom from Akron. "They decided, and they got a great guy. I'm fine with it," Van Gundy said. Silas was let go by the New Orleans Hornets at the conclusion of the regular season following his fifth season with the team. He was a candidate for several other coaching vacancies around the league.

Silas, fired by New Orleans after the season, will be hired as the Cavaliers' new coach after agreeing on a long-term contract, The Associated Press has learned. The deal was being completed Sunday night, according to two sources with knowledge of the talks who spoke to the AP on the condition of anonymity. The Cavaliers have scheduled an afternoon news conference Monday at Gund Arena, where they are expected to introduce Silas. He was selected by owner Gordon Gund over former New York Knicks coach Jeff Van Gundy. Silas was thought to be the Cavaliers' No. 2 choice behind Van Gundy, who had numerous discussions with Cleveland's front office about James, the Akron high school star. The Cavaliers, who went 17-65 last season, have the No. 1 pick in the June 26 NBA Draft and have said they will use it to pick the 18-year-old James.

Extractions: Basketball Basketball News News NBA » Cavs host Kings NBA Streetball Retro basketball Basketball Shoes ... FORUM Cleveland, OH (Sports Network) - The Sacramento Kings start a six-game road trip tonight when they travel to Cleveland to face the Cavaliers at Gund Arena. Earlier this season, Sacramento defeated the Cavaliers, 106-92, on October 29, 2003 at ARCO Arena. Cleveland rookie phenom LeBron James could miss his second straight game with a nagging ankle injury. James is hampered with a sprained right ankle he suffered during the fourth quarter of Saturday's 102-96 overtime win at Utah. James, who missed the first game of his career on Tuesday against Seattle, is expected to be out for Thursday's contest versus Sacramento. The 19-year-old participated in a shootaround Wednesday and, according to head coach Paul Silas, isn't ready to return. James leads the Cavaliers in scoring with 20.4 points per contest. The Cavs are expected to center Zydrunas Ilgauskas back on the court tonight after he served a one-game suspension on Tuesday. Ilgauskas and Utah center Greg Ostertag were each suspended for one game by the league for fighting in Saturday's game between Cleveland and the Jazz. Cleveland plays the second of a five-game homestand tonight. On Tuesday, Carlos Boozer scored 32 points and grabbed 20 rebounds to lead the short- handed Cavaliers to a surprising 99-94 win over the Seattle SuperSonics in front of their home crowd.
