Marko Jarić (Serbian: Марко Јарић) (born October 12, 1978 in Belgrade, Serbia) is a point guard currently playing for the Minnesota Timberwolves of the NBA.

He was selected as the 30th overall pick by the Los Angeles Clippers in the 2000 NBA Draft. He was traded to the Timberwolves in August 2005 along with Lionel Chalmers by the Clippers in exchange for Sam Cassell.

Jarić played on the Yugoslavian National Team when they won the 2002 World Basketball Championships, and he was also a member of the 1998 Gold Medal Under 22 European Championship team. Jaric is the only player ever to win back-to-back Italian League Championships on two different teams. He won it in 2000 with Fortitudo Bologna and in 2001 with Kinder Bologna.

Marko Jarić is the son of Srećko Jarić, considered one of the greatest international basketball players ever.

In 2002 Jarić appeared in a variety of scissor advertisements for the firm "Serbian Steelware". His apparent outlandish behaviour has seen a recent revival of popularity that culminated in this endorsement.
