The NBA will name an MVP and an All-Bubble Team to honor the top performers for the “seeding games” during the season restart in Orlando.

Potential candidates for the MVP include players like Devin Booker (30.3 points, 3.8 rebounds and 6.0 assists per game in the “bubble”), T.J. Warren (31.0 points, 6.3 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game), Damian Lillard (33.0 points, 4.3 rebounds and 9.5 assists per game) or Luka Doncic (33.4 points, 11.6 rebounds and 11.6 assists per game).

The media will vote for 10 players to make up the first and second All-Bubble teams, regardless of position or conference, and those teams along with the MVP will be announced on Aug. 15.
