Warriors Sign Mychal Mulder To 10-Day Deal

FEBRUARY 27: Mulder has officially signed his 10-day contract with the Warriors, the team confirmed today in a press release. It will run through March 7.

FEBRUARY 26: The Warriors will use one of the open spots on their 15-man roster to sign G League guard Mychal Mulder to a 10-day contract, league sources tells Shams Charania of The Athletic (Twitter link).

Mulder, 25, has been a G League mainstay since going undrafted out of Kentucky in 2017, appearing in a total of 134 games for the Windy City Bulls and Sioux Falls Skyforce over the last three seasons. In 39 games (33.2 MPG) with the Heat’s NBAGL affiliate in 2019/20, the Canadian has averaged a career-best 17.0 PPG with 4.5 RPG on .451/.399/.700 shooting.

Mulder sign an Exhibit 10 contract with Miami last fall and spent training camp and the preseason with the club, but has never been on an NBA roster during the regular season.

Since clearing several roster spots in trades before the deadline, the Warriors have been auditioning a variety of players on 10-day deals. After signing Jeremy Pargo and Zach Norvell earlier in the month, Golden State will now have Dragan Bender and Mulder on 10-day contracts.

The Warriors, who are being careful to stay below the tax line, currently have two openings on their 15-man roster, so no corresponding move will be required to make room for Mulder. As our breakdown of 10-day salaries shows, he’ll earn nearly $51K on his new deal. If he signs it on Thursday, rather than today, it will cover Golden State’s next six games instead of just five.

    Mulder is an excellent pick up for GS. May turn into a reverse of the Nunn deal.

    using a lost season as a try out camp is smart. Not sure why more NBA teams that are losing doesn’t do this. the Knicks for one should be giving try outs not pushing out the same bad players every night.

      I agree with you, but I would think it’s mainly because bad teams are usually perennial bad teams. They don’t think about doing smart things like this and are stuck in an endless loop of either bad signings or bad picks that they need to play in the hopes that they show they weren’t bad signings or picks. A team like the Warriors aren’t actually bad, but merely bad because of injuries for one year, so they don’t have any need to showcase a player they signed foolishly or drafted too highly, they can just try to find guys for the future because the coach/GM’s jobs are fully safe. More teams should do this for sure, but alas, they probably aren’t smart enough, or safe enough, to do so.

        I always look at teams that rebuild fast are the ones that do not care about records or fan attendance. They go bad for a couple of years and are back in the playoffs. Some owners are to afraid to lose and roll out average players that will not improve the team. I always think of the Orioles in baseball. They never rebuild just strive for mediocrity and not make the playoffs.

    I agree with Dana Scully, who is skeptical of this signing.

    I liked Mulder a lot in training camp with the Heat, and I felt like he has looked really good in the d-league. His skillset is kind of redundant with a couple of guys they currently have, so I didnt expect them to give him a roster spot at least until the offseason. I feel like GS has guards that will likely play over him. I think he is a good fit, but wonder about potential playing time
