DeAndre’ Bembry could hardly be hotter than he is at this very moment. After the Saint Joseph’s junior went off for a 20-point first half against Cincinnati in the first round of the NCAA Tournament, everybody knew what Philadelphia has known for some time - the player from Charlotte by way of the Patrick School in North Jersey has a game that translates to the next level.

Bembry has now made official what just about everyone has been expecting. He is declaring for the NBA draft. And he has hired an agent so he won’t be coming back to St. Joe’s under any circumstances.
