The Bhutan men's national basketball team represents Bhutan in international men's basketball and is controlled by the Bhutan Basketball Federation.

In 2011, Bhutan's national basketball team played its first international match in the 26th FIBA Asia zone qualifying tournament in New Delhi. On the same year, it also joined the Sheik Kamal International basketball tournament, which was held in Bangladesh. The team was also named as the most disciplined team at the 2013 South Asian Basketball Association championship. As of 2013, the team has yet to register its first international win.[2]
