Silas, 30, reappeared in the NBA last season when the Boston Celtics signed him to a 10-day contract March 28 and he got into two games, going scoreless in seven minutes, missing the four shots he attempted.
He had spent time with the Northern Arizona Suns of the G League — compiling averages of 18.4 points and 4.1 rebounds last season. He was also with Northern Arizona the season before.
Those games with Boston last season marked Silas’ first NBA appearance since the 2011-12 season, when he played two games for the Philadelphia 76ers, averaging 5.5 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.5 assists, shooting 26.7 percent from the field, 16.7 percent from the 3-point line and 66.7 percent from the free-throw line.
The 6-foot-5, 205-pound shooting guard played four years at the collegiate level, starting with two year at Colorado, then playing two at Northern Illinois.
