Spoelstra, who led the Heat to a 44-29 record this season, has never won the award in his career.
The 49-year-old finished in second place for the award during the 2016-17 season.
Spoelstra became Heat head coach in 2008 and has held the position ever since. He has compiled a regular season record of 567-392 and a postseason record of 73-47.
He has also won two NBA championships as head coach of the Heat.
The only time a Heat head coach won the award was during the 1996-97 season, when Pat Riley led the team to a 61-21 record.
