The following is a list of naturalized (or naturalised) basketball players who have represented their naturalized country at a FIBA international tournament.[1] The list includes players both past and present after they have represented their new nation at least once. These list excludes players whose citizenship status is unrecognized by FIBA and therefore treated the same was as naturalized players as per FIBA eligibility rules; such as the status of American-born player Jordan Clarkson who is born to a Filipino mother and has Filipino citizenship at birth.
