Jarić began his professional career in 1996, with the Greek Basket League club Peristeri. He became the first player ever to win back-to-back Italian League championships on two different teams. He won the Italian League championship in 2000, with Fortitudo Bologna, and in 2001, with Virtus Bologna.
Jarić was selected as the 30th overall pick, by the Los Angeles Clippers, in the 2000 NBA draft. He was traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves on August 12, 2005, along with Lionel Chalmers by the Clippers, in exchange for Sam Cassell and a future first-round draft pick. He was traded to the Grizzlies on June 26, 2008, in an eight-player deal involving rookie guard O. J. Mayo and rookie forward Kevin Love.
For the 2009–10 NBA season, Jarić and the Memphis Grizzlies mutually agreed that Jarić would not attend the team's training camp or any of their preseason games. Jarić was granted permission to seek a new team and a possible contract buyout for the remaining 2 years and $15 million of his contract. He then signed with Spanish club Real Madrid on December 22, 2009. On January 14, 2011, he signed with Italian club Montepaschi Siena, through the end of the 2010–11 season.
As a junior national team player, Jarić won the gold medal at the 1998 FIBA Europe Under-20 Championship. As a member of the senior FR Yugoslavia national basketball team, Jarić won gold medals at both the EuroBasket 2001 and the 2002 FIBA World Championship.
