Zoran Planinić (born September 12, 1982) is a Croatian professional basketball player who currently plays for Anadolu Efes of the Turkish Basketball League. He is also a member of the Croatian national basketball team.
In the 2003 NBA Draft, the 6 ft 7 in 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.
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. On June 17, 2010, decided to sign a 2+1 contract with the Russian Superleague A club BC Khimki.
