NEW YORK - NBA commissioner David Stern awarded the Boston Celtics a second-round selection in next year's NBA Draft from the Oklahoma City to settle a 2011 trade disclosure dispute to Tuesday.
An NBA statement said Stern found no evidence of bad theft or intent to withhold information on the part of Thunder management or doctors.
But he also found team cardiologists knew information about Jeff Green that was not shared with team officials and should have rightfully been disclosed to the Celtics in connection with Green's trade to them in February of last year.
Green underwent heart surgery this past January and did not play during the 2011-2012 season.
NBA rules require teams to disclose to each other information in their possession or control about a player's prior injuries, illnesses or other health conditions that could have an impact on their future performance.
