Warriors Sign Mullin to a Nine-Year Contract
Chris Mullin, the Golden State Warriors’ first-round draft pick from St. John’s in 1985, Friday signed a nine-year contract with the National Basketball Assn. team.
Terms were not disclosed.
Mullin, 26, averaged 26.5 points, 5.9 rebounds and 5.1 assists a game last season, his fourth. Only Chicago’s Michael Jordan and Portland’s Clyde Drexler had higher averages in all three categories. Mullin, an all-star selection, was named to the All-NBA second team.
Mullin became a restricted free agent after last season. There have been repeated rumors throughout his career that the Brooklyn native might eventually join the New York Knicks as a free agent, but the signing precludes that. Mullin’s salary was $700,000 last season.
