For a 29.5″ basketball (mens) and a 28.5″ basketball (womens), the recommended air pressure range is 7 - 9 PSI.

Don’t bother if you didn’t see it on your ball—not every manufacturer prints it on their basketballs. NBA recommends that the air pressure in a basketball must be between 7.5 and 8.5psi. You can use this standard measurement as a guide to get the required air pressure for your basketball.
With a weight of 22 oz., the ball can be inflated with a pressure range of 7.5 to 8.5 psi. These balls are made up of orange leather having black lettering, and are of size 7. For the women, the size is a little different. Again, mostly made by Spalding, the ball for women’s NBA is smaller (size 6).
In the United States, we measure this force using psi, or pounds per square inch. Conventional wisdom is that a basketball needs 8 psi to be properly inflated. A car tire, just for a comparison, needs 40 psi. Most basketballs have inflation instructions printed right on them.
