Warriors Plan Second 10-Day Contract For Mychal Mulder

Rookie guard Mychal Mulder made a strong impression on his first 10-day contract with the Warriors and appears to have earned another one, writes Anthony Slater of The Athletic. Mulder’s contract expired after last night’s game, but he went out with a flourish, scoring 18 points in a win over the Sixers.

He has gotten into six games since signing with the team on February 27 and is averaging 12.3 PPG in 29.5 minutes per night. He has made 16 total 3-pointers and is shooting 35.6% from long distance. Slater notes that among 22 players who have been on Golden State’s roster this season, Mulder is the only one with a positive plus-minus rating.

“Mike is fantastic,” coach Steve Kerr told reporters after Saturday’s game. “A really good player. Good defensively. We are lucky to have him. I know this is his final day of 10-day, but we are anxious to get him back in some way, so I’m sure that’s going to happen.”

This is Mulder’s first NBA opportunity after three seasons and 134 games in the G League. He spent training camp and the preseason with the Heat after signing an Exhibit 10 contract, but was waived before the season began.

The Warriors don’t play again until Tuesday, so they may hold off on the signing for a couple of days to get maximum value out of Mulder’s next 10-day deal. Once that expires, they will have to sign him for the rest of the season if they want to keep him on the roster.

  1. The warriors are starting a trend. Next year you will see a lot of teams giving G league players chances down the stretch that are out of the playoffs.

    • Lol this has been the trend for years. Warriors are just having success where others haven’t. They didn’t start it though

      • Refresh my memory. What team has given out so many ten day contract in the past like the warriors done this year?

        • x%sure

          Interesting point. Looking at the HR “10 day tracker” is no endorser and the trend is for decline with 10-days.

          Randle, Pargo, Norvell, Bender & Mulder– only the last 2 have any chance of sticking with GSW. The program is not working for them considering how much they reveal of themselves and the FAs available next year.

          This year, 25 players have signed so far, 8 for 20 days and 4 of those for the year remaining. Timothe Cabarrot BRK signed a 2/2.5 & Jeff Green HOU rotates some. Cavs lead with 7 players.

          Going back in time, the participation gets more & more, but no standouts, and GSW does not do it.

          2016/17 totaled 39 players for avg 1.3, 23 signed for 20 days, 19 signed for the rest of the season & several got counted twice. Quincy Acy BRK & Yogi Ferrell DAL made the most hay, David Nwaba LAL now BRK might be the best.
