Professional career[edit]

He started playing basketball in the Zadar youth selections, but was not recognized as a perspective talent a decided to move to Zagreb. Alongside teammates Dario Šarić and Mario Hezonja, he won the 2011 Euroleague Basketball Nike International Junior Tournament. Unsatisfied with his status in the senior team in September 2012 he moved to the Belgian Pepinster, but quickly returned to Zagreb and signed a new contract, without playing any official game for Pepinster.

On December 27, 2013, he signed a contract with Cibona.[4] In his first season in Cibona, Mavra was spending a very limited time on the court and played a minor role in their surprising 2013–14 ABA League championship run. His role in the team changed in December 2014 following the departure of team's then starting point guard Jerel Blassingame, and Mavra started spending much more time on the court. He started the 2015/16 season with a considerable amount of time on court, but with the arrival of James Florence and new head coach Damir Mulaomerović Mavra was sided to the bench and in December 2015 decided to move to the Polish MKS Dąbrowa Górnicza where Dražen Anzulović was head coach.[5]

On October 12, 2016, Mavra signed with Macedonian club Karpoš Sokoli.[6]

On July 25, 2017, Mavra signed with Spanish club Joventut Badalona.[7] On November 3, 2017, he left Joventut [8] and signed with MZT Skopje.[9]On January 14, 2018, at the match of the 16th round between MZT Skopje Aerodrom and Cibona, Dominik Mavra achieved 18 points, 6 rebounds, 10 assists and a valuation of 34 in less than 35 minutes spent on court. He had the highest valuation of the round in the ABA League.[10]On February 5, 2018, he left MZT Skopje.[11]

On February 6, 2018, Mavra signed a contract with BC Lietkabelis of the Lithuanian Basketball League.[12]
