Pro Basketball Talk NBA writer Kurt Helin joined the Big O Show on 560 WQAM to discuss the Hassan Whiteside situation, possible trades, and other NBA stories.

On Whiteside: “He’s going to get paid, but there are legitimate concerns about his maturity level. If you’re going to lose him this summer anyway, get something for him.”

On the Atlanta Hawks: “They’re not that good [compared to last season’s 60 win team]. They’re seeing what they can do. They realize they’re not as good as they thought they were.”
