Report: Celtics get 2nd round pick from Thunder in Jeff Green medical dispute

Tuesday June 26th, 2012

The Boston Celtics will receive a second-round draft pick from the Oklahoma City Thunder as compensation in a dispute over the medical condition of forward Jeff Green, reports Yahoo! Sports writer Adrian Wojnarowski.

Boston acquired Green in last season's trade that sent center Kendrick Perkins to Oklahoma City. Green missed all of the 2011-12 season after he needed surgery to repair an aortic aneurysm uncovered in a physical last December.




Green had successful surgery on Jan. 12 and is now "100 percent," his agent, David Falk, told's Sam Amick earlier this month. The Celtics withdrew their qualifying offer to Green in December, making the forward a free agent. Falk told Amick that at least a dozen teams have expressed interest in Green.

Green could re-sign with the Celtics, but he now has other options.
