  Victor Oladipo Named Finalist for Most Improved Player

The 76ers' talented duo of Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid are finalists for National Basketball Association awards.

Next up is the KIA Most Improved Player Award.

After a three-year reign shared between Draymond Green and Kawhi Leonard, big men make up the entire group of finalists this year.

Meanwhile, LeBron will be back on the floor with his Cavaliers teammates on Saturday for Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals at Quicken Loans Arena against the Boston Celtics, who lead the best-of-seven series 2-0. He has finished in the top 10 in MVP voting every year he's been with the Rockets (2013-2018).

Davis is also being considered for the league's highest honor, Most Valuable Player, and he'll be joined by James Harden and the ageless LeBron James.

Simmons, Utah shooting guard Donovan Mitchell and Boston small forward Jayson Tatum are the rookie-of-the-year finalists.

Oladipo turned into one of the league's top scorers this season, nabbing his first career All-Star berth and leading a Pacers team that surprised many with a fifth-place finish in the Eastern Conference standings.

The votes for the regular-season awards were submitted by the media in April. Dinwiddie finished seventh in the National Basketball Association in assists after being thrust into the starting point guard role.

Harden, who led the league in scoring, has twice been a runner-up for the award, including past year when Russell Westbrook won. He had 12 triple-doubles in the regular season.

For Sixth Man of the Year, we have Eric Gordon, Mr. Casey was sacked by the Raptors less than a week ago after a putrid showing against the Cavaliers, but an excellent regular season means he'll be part of this group. Quin Snyder and Brad Stevens are also up for the award.
