It would be difficult to determine the overall average salary of all professional Basketball players in the world. However, a simple average can be determined.

The lowest paid professional basketball players are the lowest paid players in the WNBA at $35,880. The highest paid player in the 2011 season is Kobe Bryant at $24,806,250.

The simple average between these is $12,421,065. This is by no means an accurate depiction of what the average basketball player makes.

Basketball is played around the world, and the NBA is the most prestigious, highest paying league. The WNBA has 12 teams, six in each division (East and West). There are 684 players (currently-2011) in the WNBA. The highest paid among them (Lisa Leslie) makes $103,500, so the average is $69,690 a year.

An estimate of the worldwide average for all professional basketball players would be in the area of $100,00 a year or less US.
