   2017 NBA Manifesto

Boban Marjanovic
C, 7’3, 290lbs, 28 years old, 2 years of experience

Marjanovic is the best third string centre in the league and befitting of more than he has. His per minutes are ridiculous, and, notwithstanding legitimate arguments about the quality of those minutes, the quality of opposition he played against in the majority of them, and the limitations in his pure-post game that they mask, he deserves more. Marjanovic is a horse, an unguardable horse, who cannot be stopped from getting position at the basket and who makes the shots once he get there. The fact that he cannot step out of the paint on the other end does not negate that. Marjanovic will never realise his true value if he remains stuck as a third stringer, and if they keep him behind Baynes, neither will Detroit.

Player Plan: Two years remaining at $7 million each. Worthy of more minutes that he will probably never get here. Should be a full-time backup somewhere, not a gimmick. No idea if the trade market will reflect that - probably not - yet he is a luxury who will become very valuable if the durable Baynes/Drummond pairing gets injured.
