All 16 teams who qualified for the tournament also qualified for the first round of the FIBA Asia and FIBA Oceania qualifiers for the 2019 FIBA World Cup.[2] The top five teams in the 2016 FIBA Asia Challenge earned an extra berth in the 2017 FIBA Asia Cup for their respective sub-zones.[5] Australia and New Zealand participated for the first time in this tournament.[2]

Australia won their first title by defeating Iran 79–56.[6] South Korea finished third after beating New Zealand 80–71.[7]

QualificationEdit

One playoff berth each was allocated to the Central Asia, South Asia, Southeast Asia, and the Gulf subzones, while two berths were allocated to the West Asia subzone and three berths were allocated to the East Asia subzone.[8] The top five teams of the 2016 FIBA Asia Challenge earned an extra berth for their subzones. Iran, Jordan, and Iraq earned three extra berths for the West Asia subzone, while South Korea and China earned two extra berths for the East Asia subzone. Australia and New Zealand from FIBA Oceania will be making their debut at the FIBA Asia Cup in 2017 as wild cards.[9] Lebanon as the hosts clinched one of the five berths allocated to West Asia.[10]

FormatEdit

The 2017 edition would have a different format as compared to what was used since 2009. While there would still be a preliminary round robin of four groups of four teams, the single-elimination final round immediately follows the preliminary round. In the final round, the teams that finished second and third in their respective groups would play in the qualifications to quarterfinals of the final round, while the group winners automatically qualify to the quarterfinals proper.[14]

DrawEdit

The official draw was held on May 30, 2017 at the Le Royal Hotel Dbayeh.[15] At the time of the draw teams from East Asia and Central Asia have yet to secure their qualification for the 2017 FIBA Asia Cup. China, Hong Kong, South Korea, Chinese Taipei, Japan, and Kazakhstan, all of which later secured qualification, were part of the official draw.[16]
