It didn’t take long, however, for Mulder to make an impression on Kerr. After averaging 12.3 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.3 assists in six games, he signed a partially guaranteed, three-year contract with the Warriors. Little more than 24 hours later, the NBA suspended play when Jazz center Rudy Gobert tested positive for the coronavirus.
Mulder has yet to secure a spot on Golden State’s 2020-21 roster, but some within the organization believe he could be a long-term piece of the rotation. His defensive versatility and shooting range potentially make him an ideal “3-and-D” wing in the modern NBA.
Shams Charania: The Warriors are signing guard Mychal Mulder of G League Sioux Falls to a 10-day contract, league sources tell @The Athletic @Stadium.
The Miami HEAT announced today that they have signed guard Mychal Mulder. Per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed. Mulder, who was selected in the first round (ninth overall) in the 2017 NBA G League Draft, appeared in 47 games (all starts) with the Windy City Bulls last season and averaged 13.7 points, 4.1 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 32.9 minutes while shooting 46 percent from the field, 41.2 percent from three-point range and 74.6 percent from the foul line. He led the team in minutes (1,546) and finished second in points (646), field goals made (229) and three-point field goals made (135) while helping lead the team to a postseason berth. His 135 made treys were also tied for the fifth-most in the league. During the 2017-18 season, he appeared in 48 games (31 starts) with Windy City and averaged 9.3 points, 4.5 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.13 steals and 30.9 minutes while shooting 41.8 percent from the field.

Multiple sources said that the Pacers are receptive in trade dialogue with rival teams centered on potentially moving guard Caris LeVert and either two-time All-Star Domantas Sabonis or center Myles Turner. All three players have frequently garnered significant interest from rival teams. Pacers officials have received frequent calls on both of their big men over the past several seasons, but new head coach Rick Carlisle wanted an opportunity to spend time with Sabonis and Turner and grow with the roster.
In need of a new direction amid a 10-16 start to the season, the Indiana Pacers are moving toward a substantial rebuild and are expected to open up trade conversations around some of their veteran stalwarts, sources tell The Athletic.
Ryan Wolstat: Dalano Banton says he doesn’t know Shai Gilgeous-Alexander or Lu Dort at all. Haven’t crossed paths. Doesn’t specifically try to borrow anything from Shai’s game as a big point guard. “He’s good though.”

A bit of important reporting we will try not to bury in a recap — a source familiar with the situation spoke to PhillyVoice on Monday evening and said the Sixers have had no recent discussions with Portland regarding a CJ McCollum trade, and a package centered around the Blazers’ guard is not currently of interest to the Sixers.
