The NBA announced Tuesday that all major regular season awards will be televised during the forthcoming “NBA Awards Show”.

It will air June 26 on TNT.

This will feature current and former NBA players, coaches and various celebrities.

From the press release:

The star-studded event will recognize NBA players, teams, coaches and executives for their accomplishments and performances from the 2016-17 NBA season. The show will feature the announcements of the Kia NBA Most Valuable Player, Kia NBA Defensive Player of the Year, Kia NBA Rookie of the Year, Kia NBA Sixth Man Award, Kia NBA Most Improved Player and Coach of the Year.
