The Czech national basketball team is the national basketball team representing Czech Republic. The Czech Republic has one of the newest national basketball teams in the world, having split from the Czechoslovakia national basketball team after the dissolution of the unified state in 1993, with the Slovakia national basketball team continuing as the successor of the Czechoslovak team.
