The Warriors plan to sign guard Mychal Mulder to a 10-day contract, a league source confirmed. The news was first reported by The Athletic.

Undrafted out of Kentucky, Mulder has spent the last three years in the G League, most recently for the Sioux Falls Skyforce, where he averaged 17 points, 4.5 points and 1.4 assists in 39 games this season. The 6-foot-3 guard also averaged 9.8 attempts and shot 39.9% from 3-point range this season, making him an intriguing fit within the Warriors’ offense.

After receiving limited playing time for Kentucky teams that included future NBA Draft lottery picks Jamal Murray, De’Aaron Fox and Malik Monk, Mulder went undrafted in 2017 after two seasons, but has improved his numbers each season in the G League.

Mulder, 25, is the newest addition for the Warriors, who plan to use the bottom of the roster to evaluate several prospects for the remainder of the season. In the last few weeks, they’ve signed guards Jeremy Pargo and Zach Norvell Jr. and center Dragan Bender to 10-day contracts.

It’s unclear when the deal will become official and if he will be available for Thursday’s game against the Lakers at Chase Center. When he does sign, he should see playing time in a backcourt still without Stephen Curry (left hand surgery) and Klay Thompson (left knee surgery).
