The power forward from Vukovar began his professional career at FMP Železnik in Belgrade and he made his debut in the top Serbian flight at only 17-years-old. His EuroCup debut came in 2008 when he was playing for KK Hemofarm Vršac and he was also named best youth player in the competition. He was the top scorer at the “Nike Hoop Summit” in summer 2009 (23 points) and MVP in the all-star team’s surprise win against the USA.
He did the double in Israel and reached the final of the EuroLeague with Maccabi Tel Aviv in December 2010, which they lost 78-70 against Panathinaikos Athens. Macvan was drafted by Cleveland in summer 2011 as number 54, but was loaned out to Partizan Belgrade the next season. He achieved the double with the team, who were Serbian champions at the time, and scored 15.3 points and 8.2 rebounds on average in ten EuroLeague games. He played for Turkish heavyweights Galatasaray Istanbul from 2012 until 2014, with whom he celebrated winning the championship in 2013. After a disappointing return to Partizan (2014-15), he went to Milan for two years, where he achieved two cup wins and won the Italian championship title (2016).
