Cumulus Media signs former Golden State Warriors forward Chris Mullin as an on-air contributor on KNBR/San Francisco for the 2019-2020 NBA Season. Mullin, a three-time Olympic Gold medalist and Pro Basketball Hall of Famer, was recently announced as a television pregame and postgame analyst for all 41 of Golden State's regular-season home games this season.

Mullin, who spent 13 years of his 16-season NBA career as a member of the Golden State Warriors, was originally selected by the Warriors in the first round of the 1985 NBA Draft. Prior to re-joining the Warriors for his final NBA season in 2000, he spent three seasons with the Indiana Pacers. A five-time NBA All-Star, Mullin was a member of the gold-medal winning 1992 USA Basketball Team, also known as the original "Dream Team," at the Olympic Games in Barcelona and he also won a gold medal as a college player at the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles.

Following his NBA playing career, Mullin served as a special advisor for the Sacramento Kings and General Manager for the Warriors. He was inducted into both the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame and National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame in 2011. Mullin was Head Coach of the men's basketball team at St. John's University, his alma mater, from 2015-2019.

KNBR Program Director Jeremiah Crowe said, "We are thrilled to welcome Chris into the KNBR family. Chris brings a unique perspective to both our Warriors coverage and overall NBA coverage, given his great success as a player, coach and executive. The addition of Chris further strengthens KNBR's NBA contributor lineup as the strongest in radio across Northern California."

Mullin added, "I'm looking forward to sharing insight and opinions throughout the upcoming Warriors season on KNBR, The Sports Leader. It's very exciting to be able to talk basketball every week with my good friends Tom Tolbert and Greg Papa."

In addition to Mullin, KNBR's 2019-2020 NBA coverage also carries weekday shows hosted by former Warriors Forward and current radio color analyst Tom Tolbert (Monday-Friday, 2pm-6pm), and by former Warriors radio voice and current television pregame and postgame host Greg Papa (Monday-Friday, 10am-2pm). Golden State Warriors Head Coach and eight-time NBA Champion Steve Kerr can be heard on KNBR every Tuesday during a weekly afternoon drive interview on Tolbert, Krueger & Brooks. Rounding out KNBR's NBA coverage is The Athletic Bay Area lead columnist and longtime Warriors beat writer Marcus Thompson II, who can be heard multiple times per week as a contributor.
