Bojan Popović (Serbian: Бојан Поповић; born February 13, 1983) is a Serbian professional basketball player who last played for Trefl Sopot of the Polish Basketball League. He also represented the Serbian national basketball team internationally. He is a 1.91 m (6 ft 3 in) tall point guard.
Popović is a product of FMP's youth system. After spending four years as a professional at the club from Belgrade's suburb of Železnik, winning one Serbian Cup and Adriatic League trophy, he signed a contract with Russian PBL team Dynamo Moscow. His good performances led the team to the Euroleague quarterfinals, where they lost to Panathinaikos, which eventually won the cup.
In summer 2009, Popović signed with Lithuanian Lietuvos Rytas. On November 2, 2009, Popovic won the Euroleague MVP of the Month award for the month of October. Despite his good performances, rytas failed to qualify to the Top 16 and was eliminated from the euroleague for that season. Nonetheless his abilities earned him a contract with Regular Season Group B rivals Efes Pilsen, but he failed to accomplish his early year performance at the Top 16.
On 25 August 2010, Popovic signed a one-year contract with KK Partizan. However, Partizan broke the contract only 20 days after signing it, because "he did not fit in the concept of playing". On November 22, 2010 he signed a three-month contract with Cajasol Sevilla in Spain. In March 2011 he signed with Meridiano Alicante until the end of the season.
