Early years

Planinić was born in Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina, in the former Yugoslavia. As a junior, he played for the Croatian club KK Cibona.[1]

Professional career

In the 1999–2000 season, he started his professional career on loan to Benston Zagreb.[1]

He returned to Cibona Zagreb in 2000 and he was named the Croatian League MVP in 2001. He stayed with Cibona until 2003.

In the 2003 NBA Draft, the 6 ft 7 in[2] 210 lbs. point guard-shooting guard was drafted 22nd overall by the New Jersey Nets. In three NBA seasons he averaged 4 points, 1.4 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game. Planinić's three NBA seasons were not notable, with his only distinguishing moment coming in the 2005–06 season, when he hit a spectacular full court, 77-foot, 3rd quarter-ending buzzer beater at a November 9, 2005, home win against the Utah Jazz.[3]

In the summer of 2006, Planinić and the New Jersey Nets agreed to a buyout, in which he was sent back to Europe to spend the season with TAU Cerámica of the Spanish ACB League, a team that also featured talented NBA prospect Tiago Splitter. With TAU Cerámica, Planinić won the Spanish Supercup championship in both 2006 and 2007 and the Spanish Championship in 2008.

On June 25, 2008, Planinić signed a 2-year contract with the Russian Superleague A club CSKA Moscow.[4] On June 17, 2010, decided to sign a 2+1 contract with the Russian Superleague A club BC Khimki.[5]

On July 27, 2013, he signed a two-year contract with Anadolu Efes.[6][7] In January 2014, he hit a long range buzzer beater in the last second of the game to defeat Olimpia Milano with 61–60.[8] In his first season with the team, he averaged 8.4 points points and 3.7 assists over 23 Euroleague games. In the summer of 2014, Dušan Ivković was appointed as a head coach and Planinić lost his place in the team. Despite that, he was still under contract for the 2014–15 season.[9]
