Los Angeles Lakers forward Jordan Hill has pleaded no contest to assaulting his girlfriend in February and was sentenced to one year of probation.
Hill, 25, will also have to pay a $500 fine and undergo counseling. The assault charge was reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor.
Hill is charged with assaulting Darlene Luna on Feb. 29 at his apartment while the New York Knicks' former first-round draft pick was playing for the Houston Rockets.
Luna, 29, cried on the witness stand as she recalled the incident and claimed Hill still hasn't apologized. The two avoided eye contact while they were in the courtroom together.
The 6-foot-10 Hill played for Houston from February 2010 until March, when he was traded to Los Angeles.

LeBron James- Miami Heat- After winning his first title this is a no-brainer. He possesses a rare combination of size, strength, and athleticism, which he utilizes on both ends of the court; I would still like to see him become a more consistent jump shooter, but...
Dwight Howard said over and over that he didn’t want to play for the Los Angeles Lakers. Even after he was traded to L.A., he still openly stated that he wanted to be in Brooklyn, playing for the Nets.
