Welp was selected 16th overall in the National Basketball Association's (NBA) 1987 Draft by the Philadelphia 76ers and he played three seasons in the NBA. He was traded by the 76ers, along with Maurice Cheeks and David Wingate to the San Antonio Spurs in exchange for Johnny Dawkins and Jay Vincent, during the off-season of 1989.[1]

He was used sparingly by the Spurs before being traded to the Golden State Warriors in exchange for Uwe Blab (another German-born NBA center) at the trade deadline during the 1989-90 NBA season.[2] After a handful of games with the Warriors, his NBA career ended.


In the 1996–97 season he played with the Greek League club Olympiakos in the Euroleague.[3] In the 1997–98 season he played with the German league club ALBA Berlin.[4] He also played with the Italian league club Viola Reggio Calabria during the 1998–99 season.[5] Welp worked as an assistant coach for the national team of Germany until 2006.


Welp was inducted into the Husky Hall of Fame in 2001.[6]


Welp retired in 1999, and now lives in Seattle, Washington, US
