ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP)

A former professional basketball player has pleaded guilty to assaulting his girlfriend's brother after a cookout in Maryland.

Oliver J. Miller, who played for the Phoenix Suns and other teams in the 1990s, pleaded guilty to first-degree assault and carrying a handgun Tuesday in court in Anne Arundel County.

According to prosecutors, Miller and his girlfriend's brother argued at the cookout in April and Miller later hit him repeatedly in the head with a gun. The man required 11 staples to close his wounds.

Miller's attorney did not immediately return a phone call requesting comment.

Sentencing is set for Dec. 16. Sentencing guidelines suggest Miller might spend four to nine years in prison, though because he does not have a record he will likely spend much less time behind bars.
