The Golden State Warriors are reportedly signing guard Mychal Mulder to a 10-day contract. The news comes from Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium.
Assuming Mulder gets on the court - there are plenty of minutes to go around with this depleted team - it would be an NBA debut that he’s worked a long time for. Mulder went undrafted in 2017 after playing a small role on a stacked Kentucky team. In his second and final year at Kentucky (he previously played in junior college, so was only eligible for two years), Mulder played 10.6 minutes a night, and averaged 4.7 points per game. So going undrafted was no surprise.
He went straight to the G League, and began to develop his game. A 6-foot-3 guard, Mulder has seen his numbers leap each year, from 9.3 points per game in 2017-18 (with the Windy City Bulls), to 13.7 last year (still with the Bulls), and up to 17.0 this year (with the Sioux Falls Skyforce).
He’ll fit in well with the Warriors want to do, because he gets the bulk of his buckets from the three-point line. Mulder is taking 13.1 shots per game this year, with a whopping 9.8 of them coming from distance. Better yet, he’s making them at a 39.9% clip. That plays well at any level.
Mulder represents the musical chairs being played at the back of the Warriors roster. In the last few weeks they’ve signed Jeremy Pargo, Zach Norvell Jr., Dragan Bender, and now Mulder to 10-day contracts, while also adding G League player Juan Toscano-Anderson.
