Former NBA swingman Mike Dunleavy Jr. has been hired as a scout by the Golden State Warriors, the team announced in a news release.
Dunleavy, 38, was drafted by the Warriors with the No. 3 overall draft pick in 2002. He also spent time with the Indiana Pacers, Milwaukee Bucks, Chicago Bulls, Cleveland Cavaliers and Atlanta Hawks. His final NBA season came with the Hawks in 2016-17.
He finished his career with averages of 11.2 points and 4.3 rebounds.
Dunleavy Jr. is the son of Mike Dunleavy Sr., a former NBA guard and coach, and the current head coach at Tulane. His brother James is an NBA agent, and another brother, Baker, is the head coach at Quinnipiac.
Along with Dunleavy Jr., the Warriors announced the hiring of Nick Kerr as assistant video coordinator. Kerr is the son of Warriors coach Steve Kerr and held the same position with the San Antonio Spurs last season.
The Warriors also announced two promotions on the coaching staff — as Bruce Fraser has been named an assistant coach and Chris DeMarco will be assistant coach/director of player development.
