Pro career

Jarić is the only player ever to win back-to-back Italian Championships on two different teams. He won it in 2000 with Fortitudo Bologna and in 2001 with Virtus Bologna.

Jarić was selected as the 30th overall pick by the Los Angeles Clippers in the 2000 NBA Draft. He was traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves on August 12, 2005, along with Lionel Chalmers by the Clippers, in exchange for Sam Cassell and a future first-round draft pick. He was traded to the Grizzlies on June 26, 2008 in an eight-player deal involving rookie guard O. J. Mayo and rookie forward Kevin Love.

For the 2009-10 NBA season, Marko Jaric and the Memphis Grizzlies mutually agreed that Jaric would not attend training camp or any of the preseason games. The Memphis Grizzlies are exploring trade opportunities for the guard due to the crowded backcourt situation. However, Jaric has also been granted permission to seek a new team and a possible contract buyout for the remaining 2 years and $15 million of his contract.

As a junior national team player, Jarić won the gold medal at the 1998 FIBA Europe Under-22 Championship. As a member of the senior Serbian national basketball team, Jarić won gold medals at both the EuroBasket 2001 and the 2002 FIBA World Championship.
