The FIBA Americas Championships 2007 (The Tournament of the Americas) was a basketball tournament held at Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas from August 22 to September 2. It was the thirteenth staging of the FIBA Americas Championship.

It was originally going to be hosted in Venezuela – however, they failed to pay a $1.5 million fee as of August 31, 2006. As such, their hosting privileges were taken away.

Several countries had shown interest in hosting the tournament, including: United States, Chile, Argentina and Puerto Rico. The United States has not hosted it since 1992, Chile has never hosted it, Argentina held it last in 2001 and Puerto Rico last hosted in 2003.
