The R. William Jones Cup (also known as the Jones Cup) Chinese:威廉·瓊斯盃國際籃球邀請賽 is an international basketball tournament held annually since 1977 in Taipei, Taiwan. It was named in honor of basketball promoter Renato William Jones, who was one of the founders of the International Basketball Federation (FIBA). Like the Olympics and the FIBA Basketball World Cup, it has both men's and women's versions. The men's version is currently being dominated by American teams since the tournament's inaugural staging while the women's version is being jointly dominated by South Korean, American and Taiwanese teams. It also invites professional club, collegiate and national teams from around the world, although the participants are mainly from the Asian and North American regions.

In both tournaments, each country can only be represented by one team, which could be its national team, youth team, club team, or an all-star selection, except for the hosts Chinese Taipei, which could opt to have two teams.

In 2003, the tournament was cancelled due to the SARS epidemic in Asia but was resumed the following year.
