The Golden State Warriors will use one of their open roster spots to sign G League guard Mychal Mulder to a 10-day contract.

In 39 games for the Sioux Falls Skyforce (Miami Heat’s affiliate), Mulder averaged 17.0 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game, while shooting 45.1 percent from the field and 39.9 percent from three-point.

The Warriors previously had Zach Norvell and Jeremy Pargo on 10-day contracts, but they will now have Dragan Bender and Mulder as their current 10-day players.

Assuming that Mulder gets playing time, he will have the opportunity to get plenty of minutes on a depleted Warriors team.

Mulder should also fit in with a Warriors team that features the three-pointer, as 9.8 of his 13.1 shots per game this season have come from three-point.

After going undrafted out of Kentucky in 2017, Mulder got the chance to develop his game more in the G League in hopes of getting his shot at the NBA level, and that shot has arrived.
