The Golden State Warriors have signed forward Mike Dunleavy to a multi-year contract extension, Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations Chris Mullin announced today. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not announced.

“We’re extremely grateful that we were able to reach an agreement with Mike and his representatives,” said Mullin. “We view him as a integral part of our future and as a player who will continue to develop and expand his game, much as he has during his first three years in the NBA. Mike is a player who has improved every year that he has been in the league - as the statistics indicate - and his ability to simply help our team win basketball games will play a big part in our future success. Additionally, he is a tremendous individual and an asset to our franchise both on and off the court.”
