Boban Marjanovic – Unrestricted

30-year-old Boban Marjanovic has one of the more fun pronunciations in all of basketball, but he is more than just a name. Majanovic has been, for the most part, a journeyman over his four years in the NBA. However, his presence off the bench has always been consistent.

Marjanovic is one of those guys who has never received a plethora of minutes, but makes the most of the time he has on the floor. As a career 58.3 percent shooter from the floor, Marjanovic can score. Now, he won’t offer you much from outside, but his short range is strong.

Last year, after landing with the Philadelphia 76ers, Marjanovic averaged an impressive 5.1 rebounds in less than 14 minutes per game. The averages he posted while with Philadelphia were good for career-bests in points per game (8.2), rebounds per game (see above), as well as field goal percentage (62.5).

Although he’s never had the opportunity, his per-36 minute trends are astounding as a backup big man: 22.7 points and 14.5 rebounds.

The Bulls, as I’ve said, won’t be big players in free agency. Marjanovic is a perfect example of someone they could go get fairly cheap in order to solidify depth behind Carter.
