Vraneš was selected by the National Basketball Association's New York Knicks in the second round of the 2003 NBA Draft. He was waived by the Knicks in December 2003. In early January 2004, he signed a ten-day contract with Portland Trail Blazers. Before his contract expired, he played one game in the 2003–04 NBA season.

After that, he played briefly for the Crvena zvezda. From 2004 to 2007, he played with Budućnost Podgorica for the second time in his career. In October 2007, he signed a three-year contract with Partizan Belgrade.[2]

In October 2011 he signed with Sanaye Petroshimi BC in the Iranian Super League.[3] During 2013 he played with Metalac Valjevo. In October 2013 he signed with Zob Ahan Isfahan.[4]
