In 2020 you'll see 3-on-3 basketball while watching the Olympics.

According to ABC News, in an effort to be more "youthful" the International Olympic Committee (IOC) will add 64 athletes to the athlete quota for 3-on-3 basketball.  There will be 8 teams in each of the men's and women's half-court format tournaments.

"The dream of a path from the streets to the Olympic Games has become reality for all the basketball community," said Patrick Baumann, the secretary general of basketball governing body FIBA.

An urban Tokyo venue for 3-on-3 basketball could be announced when the IOC executive board meets again in Lausanne on July 9-10, IOC sports director Kit McConnell said.
