DEANDRE BEMBRY: FROM ST. JOE’S HAWK TO ATLANTA HAWK!

By Ben Sullivan

There was a special symmetry in last night’s NBA draft for St. Joe’s star DeAndre Bembry, who was a Hawk and will be a Hawk in the fall!

The Atlanta Hawks selected wing Bembry with the No. 21 pick, their second of the first round.

The 6-6, 210-pound Bembry was an early-entry candidate after three seasons at St. Joseph’s. As a junior last season, he averaged 17.4 points, 7.8 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 37.3 minutes in 36 games and was named the Atlantic 10 Player of the Year. He was also an Associated Press Honorable Mention All-American.

According to the NBA Draft guide, Bembry’s strengths are a “versatile and cerebral wing who can play multiple positions. Outstanding passer and rebounder. Knows how to find seams in the defense and attack the basket. Long and active defender with terrific hands.”
