There were some rumblings last year with the Atlanta Hawks that if John Collins hadn't been hurt at the beginning of the season, the Hawks could have sneaked into the playoffs.

It isn't a secret that their young core of Trae Young, John Collins, and Kevin Huerter will be a solid foundation for Travis Schlenk to build on in to the future.

Kurt Helin of NBC Sports joined Jon Chuckery to talk about the upcoming draft on Thursday. He spoke about the Hawks' young core.

"I think that this is a team on the rise," Helin said.

This could be a team, with the right moves made this summer, making their way in to the playoffs and giving a veteran team a run for their money.
