About Dell Demps
A 6-foot-4-inch guard and forward out of Mount Eden High School in Hayward, Demps was a four-year starter for the Pacific men's basketball program from 1988-92. He was a three-time All-Big West selection and a two-time team MVP for the Tigers. Demps emerged as one of the most prolific scorers in Pacific history, still ranking second with a career total of 1,742 points. He also remains second among all four-year Tiger players with a career average of nearly 15.2 points per game. Demps continues to hold the record for assists in a game with 14 in Pacific's dominating 108-87 win at UC Irvine on Jan. 7, 1991.
After his time at Pacific, Demps went on to play 10 years professionally, both internationally and in the NBA. In the NBA he played with the Golden State Warriors, San Antonio Spurs and the Orlando Magic. After coaching in the NBA G League from 2001-03, Demps was a scout for the New York Knicks before moving into basketball operations where he served as the director of pro player personnel for the San Antonio Spurs for five seasons. Demps is currently in his ninth season as the senior vice president of basketball operations and general manager of the New Orleans Pelicans.
Demps was inducted into the Pacific Athletics Hall of Fame during the 2003-04 academic year. He joins an esteemed group of Tiger men's basketball alumni honored with the retirement of their collegiate numbers: Keith Swagerty's No. 32, John Gianelli's No. 23, Ron Cornelius' No. 44 and Michael Olowokandi's No. 55. All have gone on to play professionally following their respective careers at Pacific. Read more>
