The USA men 3x3 teams have compiled a 16-9 overall record in four 3x3 World Cups and claimed the silver medal, its first podium finish, at the 2016 3x3 Worlds.

Group C features China, Lithuania, Qatar, Slovenia and the silver medalist from the 3x3 qualifier; while Group D includes Brazil, Japan, Latvia, Poland and the 3x3 World Cup qualifier bronze medalist.

Following the preliminary round teams will be seeded, and the top two teams from each group will advance to the knockout phase, with the winners of each subsequent game advancing through to the medal round.

In order to be eligible to be selected to the USA team, athletes must participate in the 2019 USA Basketball 3x3 National Championship that is scheduled to be held this spring (dates and site TBA). To receive an invitation to participate in the 2019 USA Basketball 3x3 National Championship, teams must qualify through a USA Basketball 3x3 National Qualifier or receive a direct invitation from USA Basketball.
