And finally, the Stuart Scott ENSPIRE Award will be given to the WNBA and WNBA Players Association for their eight-year collective agreement, which was finalized in January, per ESPN.
The agreement reportedly includes salaries for top players increasing by nearly $100,000 (to $215,000) in addition to changes to free agency, travel improvements, additional motherhood and family-planning benefits, enhanced marketing and career-development opportunities, and changes to revenue-sharing potential.
"We believe it's a groundbreaking and historic deal," WNBA commissioner Cathy Engelbert told ESPN at the time. "I'm proud of the players; they bargained hard, they unified, they brought attention to so many important topics."
The 2020 ESPYS will air June 21 on ESPN at 9 p.m. EST.
