OAKLAND -- The Warriors announced Wednesday night at a meeting the season ticket holders that they will retire the No. 17 jersey of Hall of Famer Chris Mullin.

We are looking forward to adding another former Warriors icon, Chris Mullin, to our exclusive list of players who have had their number retired, said team owner Joe Lacob. Our history has been dotted with many terrific players who have had an incredible impact on our franchise over the years and Chris certainly falls into this prestigious category. His contributions to this organization both on the floor and in the community are quite impressive and have certainly made him one of the most beloved figures in Bay Area sports history. His recent Hall of Fame induction solidified his role as one of the greatest players in the history of the game on a global scale and we hope that this deserving honor on January 20th will help ensure that his many outstanding accomplishments are never forgotten here at home.
