We now know who is in the running for each of the NBA's end-of-season awards.

On Saturday, the NBA revealed the finalists for Most Valuable Player, Rookie of the Year, Defensive Player of the Year, Most Improved Player, Sixth Man of the Year and Coach of the Year on the NBA on TNT pregame show.

Reminder, awards voting is based on games played from the start of the regular season through March 11, which is when the season was suspended. What happens in the season restart at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida will have no bearing on this season's awards.

With that in mind, here are the finalists for each of this season's awards.
