Silas apologized for comment Wednesday
Silas made the remark to reporters Monday, one day before Boozer was to return to Cleveland after leaving the Cavaliers as a free agent last summer. Boozer didn't travel with the Jazz because of a foot injury.
Silas apologized Wednesday before Cleveland's game in Milwaukee.
"We cannot accept these kinds of comments from anyone in our organization," Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert said in a statement. "I have spoken to Paul. He understands our philosophy and feels badly about it. Paul also spoke to Carlos Boozer about the incident to express his regret. The comments were inappropriate and unacceptable."
The $10,000 will be donated to Cavaliers Charities, the team said.
