There is no single size. Even the NBA "standard", size 9, has a radius between 12.05 and 12.50 cm.

The inside should be about 20% larger than the radius of the basketball style. Simply calculate the radius of the basketball and multiply times 1.2 to get the ideal radius of the rim. So it will be 6.2 or 6 in.
