Damion Lee and Mychal Mulder entered this season on non-guaranteed contracts with the Warriors.

But their deals are on the verge of becoming fully guaranteed for the remainder of the 2020-21 campaign.

So if both players are not waived before 2:00 PT on Wednesday afternoon -- and there is zero reason to believe the Warriors will part ways with either of them -- they will experience some peace of mind.

Lee has appeared in all 31 of Golden State's games this season, averaging 6.6 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 19.5 minutes, while shooting 45.4 percent overall and nearly 39 percent from deep.

He hit theĀ game-winning 3-pointer at the buzzer vs. the Chicago Bulls, and drilled two free throws in the closing seconds to lift the Warriors past the Toronto Raptors.

The 28-year-old has had back-to-back strong performances -- 10 points, five rebounds, one steal vs. the Orlando Magic and 14 points, four rebounds, two assists, two steals vs. the Charlotte Hornets -- and is looking to score in double figures in three straight games for the first time this year.

Mulder went 0-for-4 from beyond the arc Saturday night in Charlotte, but made 18-of-39Ā attemptsĀ (46.2 percent) over the prior nine games.
