The Yugoslavia men's national under-19 basketball team, commonly referred to as the Yugoslavia men's national junior basketball team (Serbo-Croatian: Mlada košarkaška reprezentacija Jugoslavije), was the boy's basketball team, administered by Basketball Federation of Yugoslavia, that represented SFR Yugoslavia in international under-19 (under age 19) men's basketball competitions, consisting mainly of the World Championship for Junior Men.

After the dissolution of SFR Yugoslavia in 1991, the successor countries all set up their own national under-19 teams. Serbia won the Championship in 2007.

Several members of the team have been inducted into the FIBA Hall of Fame, including players Vlade Divac and Toni Kukoč, while Dino Rađa is a member of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

New national teams[edit]

After the dissolution of SFR Yugoslavia in 1991, five new countries were created: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, FYR Macedonia, FR Yugoslavia (in 2003, renamed to Serbia and Montenegro) and Slovenia. In 2006, Montenegro became an independent nation and Serbia became the legal successor of Serbia and Montenegro. In 2008, Kosovo declared independence from Serbia and became a FIBA member in 2015.
