Mullens is more of a question mark than O’Neal and Blair.  He was drafted by the Thunder, but he didn’t get much playing time until he was on the Charlotte Bobcats.  Mullens averages 8.4 points and 4.8 rebounds per game for his career, but he only shoots 40.3 percent from the field.

Mullens clearly doesn’t have the skill to be a starting center, but he should make a good backup.  The Warriors would be a great change of scenery for him.  He has the size to clog the paint and wouldn’t need to worry about putting up points.

Mullens should be pretty cheap to get, which is good for the Warriors.  If he focuses on rebounding and improving on defense, there is definitely a spot on the team for him.
