Dallas Mavericks
2019 Fantasy Outlook
The veteran with the cult following continued his nomadic NBA existence last season. Marjanovic suited up for both the Clippers and 76ers -- the third and fourth teams of his four-year professional career stateside. The 31-year-old ended up setting new personal bests across the board, logging career highs in minutes (11.7), points (7.3), rebounds (4.6) and shooting percentage (61.5). Marjanovic parlayed his modest success into a two-year, $7 million pact with the Mavericks this offseason, but his role isn't expected to be much different than at his prior stops. He figures to slot in behind Dwight Powell and Maxi Kleber at center, with fellow seven-footer Kristaps Porzingis also capable of potentially filling in at the five. It's worth noting Marjanovic proved highly efficient during some starting opportunities last season, even posting six double-doubles and 27 double-digit scoring tallies overall across 58 games (12 starts). Therefore, he has the potential to offer the occasional spike in production if he sees double-digit minutes, as he's typically active offensively and on the boards when he's on the floor. However, Marjanovic offers little in steals and blocks for a player who's a legitimate 7-foot-3, and he'll likely have an uphill climb to playing time once again in his new locale, barring injuries to those in front of him.

Personal Bio

Boban Marjanovic was born in Boljevac, Serbia, Yugoslavia in 1988. He began playing youth basketball with the Boljevac-based club Rtanj. When he was 14, Marjanovic moved to Serbian professional team Hemofarm, playing on their youth squads until the 2005-06 season. "Bobi" has an interest in acting. In 2015, he made a cameo in the Serbian sports drama We Will Be The World Champions. Marjanovic also appeared in the action thriller John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum, which was released in May 2019. In 2018, he launched "The Bobi + Tobi Show" along with friend and former teammate Tobias Harris, chronicling the pair's friendship in a web series. Marjanovic has also taken part in charitable activities. In January of 2020, he volunteered his time at the Mesquite Boys and Girls Club in Mesquite, Texas, as part of the Dallas Mavericks' Jr. NBA Clinic. Learn more about Marjanovic by following him on Twitter (@BobanMarjanovic) and Instagram (@boban).

College/International Summary

By the time Marjanovic was 14 years old, he was already taller than 6-foot-10. Basketball seemed to be his destiny and he played in youth leagues in Serbia until joining Hemofarm's first team in the second half of the 2005-06 season. He played for CSKA Moscow starting in 2010 when he was 22 years old. In 2011, he helped his team win the Lithuanian League and the Baltic League and was the winner of the Lithuanian Cup. Marjanovic moved to the EuroLeague in 2013-14 and was the winner of the Serbian Cup and an All-ABA League Team member in both 2014 and 2015. In the latter year, he was also the ABA Playoff MVP and won the Serbian Super League MVP for the third straight season. In his final season in Europe, the 7-foot-4 center averaged 25.7 points (on 62.1 percent shooting) and 10.7 rebounds to lead the league. He signed with the San Antonio Spurs in 2015.

ANALYSIS
With Seth Curry (leg) out, the Mavs will apparently go with a super-sized lineup featuring Marjanovic at center and Kristaps Porzingis at the four. Marjanovic has played a total of just 18 minutes through the Mavs' first three seeding games.

Past Season Summaries
2018

Marjanovic began the 2018-19 season with the Clippers, but for the second consecutive season, he found himself on the move ahead of the trade deadline. Dealt to the 76ers on Feb. 6, he went on to post some of the best stats of his career. Marjanovic had played in 36 games (nine starts) for the Clippers, averaging 6.7 points, 4.2 rebounds and 0.5 blocks despite averaging just 10.4 minutes per game. Over the course of his 22 games with Philadelphia, the fourth-year big man saw his playing time climb to 13.9 minutes per game. He took full advantage, averaging 8.2 points, 5.1 rebounds and 0.5 blocks after the trade. Marjanovic also set a new career high with a a remarkable 61.5 field-goal percentage for the season. All told, he scored in double digits 24 times, a career high, including six double-doubles. His biggest game of the year came in a Sixers uniform on Feb. 21, when he tied his season highs with 19 points and 12 boards against the Heat; he'd scored 19 points and gathered 12 boards in two separate games for the Clippers. The Serbian center also attempted the first 3-pointers of his career, making 4-of-10 shots from long range, with all his makes coming after the trade. He went on to appear in 11 of 12 playoff games for the 76ers, scoring in double digits off the bench in the first three games of their first-round win over Brooklyn. On the whole, he averaged 5.8 points and 3.3 rebounds in just 9.5 minutes per game during the playoffs.

2017

Marjanovic began the 2017-18 campaign with the Pistons, appearing in 19 games (one start) before being shipped to the Clippers in the Blake Griffin deal at the trade deadline. He went on to play in another 20 games for Los Angeles, all off the bench. Marjanovic posted his typical high-efficiency, limited-minutes line in both uniforms, compiling composite averages of 6.0 points (a career high) and 3.7 rebounds despite averaging a mere 8.6 minutes per game. He posted nine games with 10 or more points, peaking with 18 points alongside six boards, two steals and a block for the Clippers in just 15:09 against Denver on Feb. 27. Marjanovic double-doubled Apr. 11 against the crosstown-rival Lakers, netting 12 points and 10 boards in just 12:42. A superbly reliable short-range shooter, the towering Serbian posted a 53.4 field-goal percentage while shooting 79.4 percent from the line. He shot particularly well following the trade, putting up a 55.1 percent mark as a Clipper.

2016

Marjanovic inked a three-year deal with the Pistons ahead of the 2016-17 season. He went on to play in 35 games off the bench for Detroit, again serving as a per-minute statistical monster in extremely limited playing time. Marjanovic averaged only 8.4 minutes per game, yet he managed to put up averages of 5.5 points and 3.7 rebounds in that time. Those per-36-minute numbers were even more incredible than his rookie year -- 23.5 points and 16.0 rebounds. The 7-foot-4 Serbian also shot a remarkable 81.0 percent from the free-throw line. On the few occasions when he received significant minutes, Marjanovic racked up stats. On Jan. 5, he picked up a career-high 19 rebounds along with 15 points in just over 22 minutes for the first of his five double-doubles on the year. On Mar. 24, he scored another 15 points in only 12 minutes on the court. But his biggest game came Apr. 7 against Houston, when he took advantage of playing 27:33 to post a career-high 27 points and 12 rebounds.

2015

Following several seasons of stardom in his native Serbia, Marjanovic signed a one-year, $1.2 million contract with the Spurs ahead of the 2015-16 campaign. He proceeded to appear in 54 games for San Antonio, starting four times. The 27-year-old rookie averaged 5.5 points, 3.6 rebounds and 0.4 blocks per game despite playing only 9.4 minutes per contest. On a per-36-minute basis, those are eye-popping numbers -- 21.0 points, 13.7 rebounds and 1.6 blocks. He also appeared in three games for the D League's Austin Spurs, averaging 23.7 points, 12.3 rebounds and 1.3 blocks. Indeed, Marjanovic showed that he could rack up stats at any level when given the opportunity. On Mar. 23, in just 13:33 on the court, he scored 19 points on 9-of-12 shooting against the Heat. Incredibly, Marjanovic recorded three double-doubles off the bench, and he didn't even clear 17 minutes in two of those games. But his biggest performance came in a rare start on the last game of the season, when he racked up 22 points, 12 boards and two blocks across 37 minutes against Dallas. Marjanovic appeared in seven of the Spurs' 10 playoff contests, averaging 3.4 points and 2.0 rebounds despite playing just 6.0 minutes per game.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
2015
For the second straight season, Marjanovic saw action in less than 40 games, as he struggled to get minutes against teams with smaller, more athletic big men. He actually split the 2017-18 campaign between the Pistons and Clippers, and in 20 games after being dealt to Los Angeles in the Blake Griffin trade, Marjanovic averaged 5.9 points and 4.4 rebounds across 8.4 minutes. He's proven to provide solid production when forced into extended playing time, but that's a rarity and is unlikely to change in his first full season with the Clippers. Look for Marjanovic to provide depth behind Marcin Gortat and Montrezl Harrell, keeping him well off the Fantasy radar.
Marjanovic was stuck in a deep reserve role behind Andre Drummond and Aron Baynes at center last season, playing just 35 games overall. While he showed some promise in the final four games of the season, a stretch where he averaged 15.8 points and 10.3 rebounds across 23.0 minutes, he's unlikely to become a significant part of the team's regular rotation as long as Drummond is around. When you add that to the fact that many NBA teams are transitioning to smaller, quicker big men at center, Marjanovic's 7-foot-3 frame could become an issue trying to defend some of those more athletic and perimeter based centers. Still, with Baynes now in Boston, Marjanovic will pick up backup center duties, a role that should afford him more than the 8.4 minutes he saw a season ago. Look for an uptick in production across the board for Marjanovic, but with Drummond still getting the bulk of the minutes, that should limit Marjanovic's value to those in deeper leagues.
At 7-foot-3 and 290 pounds, Marjanovic will instantly be one of the largest players in the NBA on a team that already has what is most likely the deepest frontcourt in the league. The 27-year-old center from Serbia averaged 16.6 points, 10.7 rebounds, 1.0 assist, 0.9 blocks, and 0.4 steals in 27 minutes per contest through 24 games last season in Europe. Most intriguing is Marjanovic's efficiency, as his production in Europe came on true 62 percent shooting from the field and 78 percent shooting from the free-throw line. With Tim Duncan, David West, LaMarcus Aldridge, Matt Bonner, and Boris Diaw all seasoned NBA veterans, it will be hard for Marjanovic to make a significant impact for the Spurs this season. Should coach Gregg Popovich elect to rest his starters, Marjanovic could have some relevant fantasy nights in daliy games, but he's unlikely to have a prolonged stretch of good fantasy value in standard leagues. Marjanovic suffered a fracture in his foot during July and will be out indefinitely until it heals.
