The Warriors and Kings are reported to be among the Western Conference teams bidding for Iverson, along with Boston, Indiana and Orlando in the East. Any potential deal involving Golden State likely would include Jason Richardson or Monta Ellis, unless the Warriors offered to swap point guards (Baron Davis).
Asked if he was happy with his backcourt, Mullin said he would "be happy when I get all the pieces in the backcourt back."
Mullin spent $173 million to lock in Richardson, Troy Murphy and Mike Dunleavy -- players he has repeatedly referred to as the Warriors' core -- but the unit has lost some luster in the wake of various injuries and inconsistent play.
Richardson has been temporarily shelved as he recovers from various knee ailments, while Murphy has often found himself on the bench during the end of games. That's left Dunleavy as the only Warrior to be available for every game this season.
Though Davis said Monday that the veterans needed to step up to ease the pressure being put on the Warriors' younger players like Ellis and Andris Biedrins, Mullin took a softer stance given the circumstances.
"I think they're doing well," he said when asked specifically about Dunleavy and Murphy. "Again, when you do pull one or two guys out, roles change. There is a direct effect on the team ...
"Two main guys that we expected to be in that rotation have not been there," he said, referring to Richardson and Ike Diogu. "Again, that's had an influence on trying to figure out the best solution for that game, for that play, for that last five (minutes), or whatever it may be."
