NEW YORK (AP) — The Milwaukee Bucks have lost a 2022 second-round draft pick. The NBA has determined the team held discussions with Bogdan Bogdanovic or his agent before it was allowed under free agency rules.

The league says the violation constituted “conduct detrimental to the NBA.”

The trade fizzled as the NBA announced it was investigating whether the move had been agreed upon earlier than league rules allow.

Bogdanovic ended up signing with Atlanta when Sacramento chose to not match the Hawks’ four-year, $72 million offer sheet.
