Mychal Mulder

The Golden State Warriors took a chance on the 6-foot-4 3-and-D Mychal Mulder last season. They won just 15 games that season, but it didn’t matter for Mulder’s sake as he proved he’s capable of playing and scoring at a high level.

Mulder played in seven games last season, starting three. He’s already played in all three this season, playing just 11.7 minutes per game. However, against the Bulls, he made a strong case on why he should see more time.

The second-year guard put up seven points in just over 10 minutes. He had a steal and two threes.  On the season, he is 5-for-11 from deep and has 18 points. Mulder has done what he’s expected to do, and he’s doing it well.

The Warriors could use more shooters like Mulder to get the pressure off Stephen Curry. Kelly Oubre Jr. and Andrew Wiggins just haven’t made open shots, and Mulder has at least shown he can do that.

That said, the Warriors may be better off if they give more minutes to Mulder, Wiseman, and Paschall.
