FIBA will go ahead with implementing new format and calendar of competitions starting 2017.
The main points are:

The next edition of FIBA Basketball World Cup (following the one in Spain in 2014) will be moved to 2019. A total of 32 teams will take part at the tournament.
The qualifying events for the World Cup will take place during two years. The national teams will be divided into two divisions Division A and Division B with groups of three or four teams in an open system with promotion and relegation. Games in the qualification period will be played in a home-and-away format.

Asia and Oceania will play in a combined Asia-Pacific region to qualify for the FIBA Basketball World Cup, but universality will remain in place for the qualifying process to the Olympic Games.

As of 2017, the continental championships will take place every four years (2017, 2021, 2025) with a similar system of qualification as for the FIBA Basketball World Cup and which will come into action after FIBAs flagship event in 2019. The windows will follow the same principle as the qualifying process to the FIBA Basketball World Cup but will be adapted in the Olympic years (2020, 2024).

The qualification for the 2020 Olympics will be through the 2019 FIBA Basketball World Cup and four Olympic Qualifying Tournaments to be held in four zones.

FIBA also have given out plans to review the womens calendar and system of competition within the next year.
