Jabari Bird is awaiting sentencing after making a plea in a case accusing him of assaulting his ex-girlfriend.

Bird faced several charges in the alleged attack on the woman in September, including strangulation or suffocation, kidnapping, and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.

The woman said "the physical and psychological pain you have caused me will haunt me forever."

Bird was traded by the Boston Celtics in February to the Atlanta Hawks and was subsequently waived.
