Statement from Carolyn, Paula and Stephen Silas:

We would like to thank everyone who has reached out to give their condolences and share their memories of our husband and father, Paul Silas. This has been an extremely difficult week, but it has been amazing to hear from so many of the people he impacted throughout his life. We especially want to thank Adam Silver and the NBA; Michael Jordan, Fred Whitfield and the Charlotte Hornets; The Fertitta Family and the Houston Rockets, as well as all the teams and individuals who honored Paul with tributes this week. He will be missed dearly.

Details are still being finalized, but the memorial will take place in early 2023. In lieu of flowers, donations in Paul’s memory can be made to:
