Hawks pick DeAndre Bembry still mourning brother's death

ATLANTA (AP) Former St. Joseph's standout DeAndre Bembry will be playing for his late brother as he launches his NBA career with the Atlanta Hawks.

Bembry, a wing player selected by Atlanta with the No. 21 overall pick of the NBA draft on Thursday night, fought for words when he talked about his brother Adrian Potts, 20, who was shot and killed in Charlotte, North Carolina on June 11.

Bembry didn't attend the draft because it was so close to his brother's funeral last week.
