Unlike previous editions, the tournament did not award spots for the FIBA World Cup or the Summer Olympic Games. However, the top seven teams qualified to the 2019 Pan American Games.

The United States, with a team of NBA G League players, won their seventh gold medal at the tournament, after defeating Argentina, by a score of 81–76, in the final, while Mexico took home the bronze, by beating the U.S. Virgin Islands, 79–65.[2][3]
