Sources: C's getting 2012 pick from OKC
Yahoo! Sports had earlier reported the NBA's decision. The pick going to Boston is a pick the Thunder acquired from the Charlotte Bobcats in 2011 for Byron Mullens.
That's good news for the Celtics, considering the Bobcats set an NBA record for futility last season. Chances are, that pick is going to be in the low 30s overall.
The Celtics acquired Green in a 2011 trade that sent Kendrick Perkins to Oklahoma City. The deal also sent Nenad Krstic and a first-round pick (No. 22 overall in Thursday's draft via the Clippers) to Boston and Nate Robinson to the Thunder.
Kristic and Robinson are no longer with the Celtics and Thunder, respectively.
The Celtics withdrew a one-year, $9 million contract offer to Green after he failed a physical due to a heart ailment. He missed the entire 2011-12 season and had surgery to repair an aortic aneurysm in January.
He is an unrestricted free agent and his agent, David Falk, told Sports Illustrated earlier this month that he's had exploratory talks with "12 to 14 teams" regarding Green.

From the NBA:
As part of a ruling in a trade disclosure dispute between the Boston Celtics and the Oklahoma City Thunder, NBA Commissioner David Stern today awarded the Celtics a 2013 second-round draft pick held by the Thunder. Stern found that there was no evidence of bad faith or any intent to withhold information on the part of Thunder management or its physicians, but that Oklahoma City's cardiologists were in possession of information about Jeff Green that was not shared with Thunder management and that should have been disclosed to the Celtics in connection with the trade of Green in February 2011.
Under NBA rules, teams are required to disclose to each other in connection with trades any information in their possession or control about a player's prior injuries, illnesses, or other health conditions that could affect the player's ability to play NBA basketball at any point in the future. Green had surgery on his heart in January 2012 and did not play during the 2011-12 season.
