DrawEdit

The draw was held at the FIBA Headquarters, also known as the "House of Basketball" in Mies, Switzerland, on 11 March 2016. As the three winners of the 2016 FIBA World Olympic Qualifying Tournaments for Men (OQT) were yet to be known, they were assigned placeholders as "OQT 1", "OQT 2" and "OQT 3". These were the pot assignments:

Pot 1 Pot 2 Pot 3 Pot 4 Pot 5 Pot 6

  United States
  Spain

  Venezuela
  Argentina

  Nigeria
  China

  Australia
  Brazil

  Lithuania
OQT 1

OQT 2
OQT 3

Group A was assigned with OQT 1 and OQT 2, while Group B had OQT 3.[12]

After the World Olympic Qualifying Tournament on 10 July 2016, another draw was held at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay, Philippines, to determine which among the teams would be assigned to which group. This was a straight draw: there were two pots containing three balls each. One pot had the names of the teams that won the Olympic Qualifying Tournaments (OQT), while the other pot had the name of the placeholders.[13]
