Due to the 2013 Guang Da Xing No. 28 incident, Taiwanese officials withdrew its invitation for the Philippines men's national basketball team, the defending champions of the tournament, citing that the withdrawal of the invitation would ensure the safety of the Philippine representatives following the diplomatic incident between the Philippines and the host country (Taiwan). Egypt's national basketball team replaced the Philippines and made its debut in the tournament.[1][2]
