A legendary NBA star and former head coach reportedly died on Sunday morning.

In keeping with longtime Boston Celtics insider Bob Ryan, legendary NBA figure Paul Silas has died on the age of 79 years old.

“I’m very sad to report that the Great Paul Silas has died at age 79. To look at him play was a joy. To be his friend was an honor,” he reported on Sunday morning.

Silas, the daddy of Houston Rockets head coach Stephen Silas, played within the NBA from 1964-80. He won three championships as a player and made two All-Star games.

He starred collegiately at Creighton, where he was an All-American and had his jersey retired.
