NEW YORK -- The NBA has awarded the Boston Celtics a 2013 second-round pick of the Oklahoma City Thunder as part of a trade disclosure dispute ruling involving Jeff Green, who sat out this season after heart surgery.

Commissioner David Stern determined Tuesday there was no evidence of bad faith or intent to withhold information on the part of the Thunder, but that their cardiologists had knowledge about Green that was not shared with their own team management and should have been disclosed to the Celtics.

Boston acquired Green at the 2011 trade deadline in a deal that sent Kendrick Perkins to Oklahoma City.

NBA teams are required to disclose to each other in connection with trades a player's past history that could affect his ability to play in the future.
