Mulder also scored a "career-high" 18 points in a win over the Philadelphia 76ers on March 7.
Prior to his time with Golden State, Mulder played in the NBA G League with the Sioux Falls Skyforce from 2019 to 2020, as well as the Windy City Bulls from 2017 to 2019.
Additionally, Mulder joined the Miami Heat's training camp in September 2019, but was cut from the team on Oct. 15, after having appeared in only two preseason games.
While in Windsor-Essex, Mulder played for Catholic Central High School under coach Peter Cusumano.
Cusumano said Mulder called him a few days ago to share the news about the contract, explaining that the Warriors initially considered drafting Mulder for another 10-day contract.
"Meanwhile, other teams were calling his agent offering him a contract," Cusumano explained, adding that Golden State ultimately decided to draft his former student.
As per Cusumano's assessment, Golden State is a great fit for Mulder.
