The popular Mavs center has been traded to the Rockets in exchange for Christian Wood so let’s find out more about Boban Marjanovic’s wife Milica Krstic and their family.

Boban Marjanovic has become a fan favorite in the NBA due to his eccentricity and larger-than-life personality. The 7ft 4in center has played for the San Antonio Spurs, Detroit Pistons, Los Angeles Clippers, and Philadelphia 76ers, and was most recently with Luka Doncic at the Dallas Mavericks.

However, news of a trade involving Boban recently broke, meaning he’s on the move once again.

Mavs favorite traded to Houston Rockets

On Wednesday, 15 June, it was revealed the Houston Rockets had agreed a trade to send Christian Woods to the Dallas Mavericks in exchange for the No. 26 pick in the 2022 NBA Draft as well as Boban Marjanovic, Sterling Brown, Trey Burke and Marquese Chriss

Marjanovic has spent four years with the Mavericks but saw limited game time this season. He averaged 4.5 points and 1.8 rebounds in just 22 games.

Meet Boban Marjanovic’s wife, Milica Krstic

Naturally, people want to know more about his personal life, including who Boban Marjanovic’s wife Milica Krstic is. Like Boba, Milica is from Serbia and grew up in Belgrade with her brother. Her exact birthday isn’t known but she is believed to be about 30 years of age.

Milica is known to have appeared in two Serbian television shows, Emergency Center and Sindjelici. The first show is the Serbian version of American hit show ER, while the second is a long-running Serbian comedy.

The couple first met at a party and reportedly dated for around six years. Their obvious height difference has been a long-running point of interest given Milica lists herself as 5ft 3in while Boban towers over her at 7ft 4in:

Boban and Milica have two children

The couple tied the knot in 2014 and had two wedding ceremonies – one in Mexico and the other back home in Belgrade. Boban and Milica Krstic have two sons – Vuk, who was born in 2011, and Petar, born in 2015.

Milica and the children are huge supporters of Boban and often cheer him on during games.

You can follow Milica as she supports her husband at his new team in Houston @mrsbobi where she has more than 30k followers.
