Professional career

A 7'1" (2.16 m) center born in Munich, West Germany, Bagarić had averaged 18.3 points and 10.4 rebounds per game for the Croatian team Benston Zagreb before the Bulls selected him with the 24th pick in the 2000 NBA draft.

In September 2012, he signed a one-month deal with Sporting Al Riyadi Beirut in Lebanon.[3] In December 2012, he signed with the Lebanese club Amchit. In the 2013–14 season, he played for Étoile Sportive du Sahel in Tunisia, KK Zabok in Croatia and Al-Ahli Benghazi in Libya.[4] In 2014, he signed with Brose Baskets Bamberg of the Basketball Bundesliga where he signed on December 2, 2014 a contract extension.[5]
