The FIBA Diamond Ball was an official international basketball tournament organised by FIBA, held every Olympic year prior to the Olympics. The first tournament was held in 2000 for men's teams only. In 2004 and 2008, tournaments were held for both men and women.

The competing teams are the host country of that year's Olympics, defending Diamond Ball champions, the reigning world, Olympic and continental champions, minus the United States men's team. The United States women's team did not participate in the 2004 event although they were the then-reigning world champions. However, they did compete in the 2008 event as the Americas champions.

Not held in 2012, the tournament is not in FIBA's schedule for the next Olympic-year calendar, 2016 in Brazil.[1]
