After college, Lear was selected by the Philadelphia Warriors with the seventh pick of the 1956 NBA draft. His NBA career was brief, however: he appeared in just three games during the 1956–57 NBA season and scored four points.

In 2013, Temple retired his No. 6 jersey. Lear died on June 25, 2016 at his home in White Plains, New York after an illness.
