Christian Welp, the 7-foot (2.13-meter) German center, has died. He was 51.
Welp, who played three seasons in the NBA, including 14 games with the Warriors in the 1989-90 season, holds the University of Washington's career scoring record.
The school confirmed the death Sunday. It didn't provide details.
Welp finished his Washington career in 1987 as the school's career leader in points, rebounding and blocks. He scored 2,073 points for the Huskies and was a three-time all-Pac-10 selection. Welp was the Pac-10 player of the year in 1986 and helped lead the Huskies to consecutive conference regular-season titles.
Welp was drafted No. 16 overall by the Philadelphia 76ers in 1987. He played two seasons with the 76ers and split the 1989-90 season with Golden State and San Antonio. Welp won nine championships in Europe after his NBA career ended.
Welp averaged 3.6 points, 2.6 rebounds, 0.6 blocks and 10.1 minutes per game while with the Warriors.
