There is no specific number, as the number is always growing and or shrinking. However, if you take the NBA (30 teams, 15 player= 450), and know that there are two main other leagues (European and Spanish), then you get around 1,000 players. However, including the D-League and all other leagues, the number of people that play professional basketball worldwide would be around 10,000 people.

There are no requirements of being a professional basketball player aside from going to college for a year. Many people are drafted in the NBA draft, but some people get signed later on too.
