His professional debut happened in 2006 when he joined the Serbian professional team Hemofarm. He got a spot in the first team, playing in the second half of the 2005–06 Adriatic League season. Boban played on the first team until he was loaned to the Serbian League team Swisslion Takovo in January 2007. Boban went on to win 3 consecutive Serbian Super League MVPs from 2013 to 2015. He’s represented Serbia at the junior and senior levels internationally, winning gold medals at the U-19 and U-20 levels.

In the first game of the 2014–15 EuroLeague season, Boban Marjanovic helped his team to a 76–68 victory against Galatasaray, contributing with 22 points scored 10 rebounds pulled down in 28 minutes on the court. In an April 2014 game against Panathinaikos, he set the EuroLeague record for the most rebounds in a single season with 256, passing Mirsad Türkcan’s previous record of 248 rebounds in the 2002–03 season.

After several years playing in European leagues, Boban moved to the NBA, where he signed on with the San Antonio Spurs. There, he was teammates with LaMarcus Aldridge during the 2015-16 season. The 7 feet 3 inches NBA center then went on to sign with the Detroit Pistons in 2016 after spending his first NBA season with the Spurs. In mid-2019, Boban Marjanovic signed a 2-year contract with the Dallas Mavericks which includes $7 million as a guaranteed amount and an annual average salary of $3.5 million. Despite having played in just seven of the Mavericks’ 15 games in 2019, Boban established a career-best average in that span (7.7 points and 5.3 rebounds per game).

Boban’s Other Sources Of Income And His Total Net Worth

Besides his basketball career, Boban Marjanovic also has ties with the business world. Boban is the Chief Blanket Connoisseur for the Big Blanket Co. He co-founded Big Blanket Co. with Anthony Tolliver (of Portland Trailblazer), who played with Marjanovic when the two were on the same team in the Detroit Pistons from 2017-2018. The company’s “average” blankets are 10 feet by 10 feet, making them four times the size of a normal throw blanket. The blankets are on sale online.

On the other hand, Boban made a cameo in the movie John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum, appearing as an assassin that tries to kill John Wick at the New York Public Library.

Boban Marjanovic is a married man. In fact he got married to his wife twice. Before they tied the knot, Boban and his wife Milica Krstic lived together for three years in their 6 years of relationship, before they decided to make it official with a wedding. Their first wedding was held at the beautiful Mexican beaches on July 3, 2014, and eventually, they married for the second time in Belgrade, Serbia on July 13, 2014.

Boban and Milca are parents to 2 male children; Vuk and Pera. Boban’s sons have both attended live basketball games to watch their father play. This was especially when he was with the Detroit Pistons. Marjanovic once posted a photo of himself with Milica, Vuk, and Pera at the Little Caesars Arena, where the Pistons play their home games.

Going by Milica’s posts about her kids’ school days, zoo adventures and birthday celebrations, it seems Milica Marjanovic resides in the couple’s native Serbia while her husband plays in the NBA. Even while overseas, the proud wife supports her basketball spouse by regularly posting photos of the seven-footer in his team uniform.
