The Italian Basketball Federation announced that national team head coach Romeo Sacchetti extended his contract for two more years.

Italy sealed its ticket to the World Cup after dominating Hungary (75-41) and will return to the competition for the first time since 2006.

Sachetti took over the team in 2017 and succeeded Ettore Messina who coached Italy in the 2017 EuroBasket.
