Hill apologizes for nude photos

SAN ANTONIO -- San Antonio Spurs guard George Hill is apologizing for nude pictures of himself that were recently posted online.

In a statement issued by the team Tuesday, Hill said: "A year ago I made a mistake and take full responsibility for my actions. I have matured and learned from this episode."

Hill apologized to his girlfriend, family, the Spurs and fans.

Hill, the Spurs' first-round draft pick in June 2008, is the first player from Indiana University-Purdue University at Indianapolis to make it to the NBA.

Last month, Portland Trail Blazers center Greg Oden apologized for nude photos of himself that surfaced on the Internet.
