Mavs’ Boban Marjanovic testing new elbow accessory to unlock inner Splash Brother
Dallas Mavericks center Boban Marjanovic has made at least one significant change to his game during the season’s extended hiatus.
The Mavs big man took the court in the Orlando bubble to practice with his teammates on Sunday, donning a black shooting sleeve on his left arm.
When asked what inspired the adoption of the accessory, Marjanovic explained his desire to expand his shooting range. Just take a look at this sweet jumper:

If you’re wondering, Marjanovic has a long way to go to get on the Splash Brothers’ level. The 7-foot-4 Serb has attempted just 25 triples in his NBA career, though he drained eight of those attempts for a respectable 32.0% career mark from behind the arc. This season for the Mavs, he’s 4-for-15 from downtown in 37 games.
In general, Marjanovic seems to be enjoying life in Disney World so far. However, the center will probably enjoy his time even more if he’s allowed to hang out with his good buddy and former Philadelphia 76ers teammate Tobias Harris. For now, he’ll have to continue socializing with MVP-caliber teammate Luka Doncic:

Marjanovic will get a chance to show off his shooting skills in a scrimmage vs. the Los Angeles Lakers on July 23, followed by scrimmages vs. the Indiana Pacers (July 26) and his former team, the Sixers, on July 28. Dallas kicks off its official seeding games on July 31 vs. the Houston Rockets.
