The Basketball Federation of Yugoslavia (Serbo-Croatian: Košarkaški savez Jugoslavije / Кошаркашки савез Југославије; Slovene: Košarkarska zveza Jugoslavije; Macedonian: Кошаркарска федерација на Југославија) was a non-profit organization and the national sports governing body for basketball in Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. Until 1991, the organization has represented SFR Yugoslavia in FIBA and the men's and women's national basketball teams in the Yugoslav Olympic Committee.

After the dissolution of SFR Yugoslavia in 1991, the successor countries all set up their national federations.
