Drafted 24th overall by the New Jersey Nets in the 2002 draft, Krstic played professionally in Serbia for four seasons before joining the New Jersey Nets for the 2004-05 season. He averaged career highs of 16.4 points and 6.8 rebounds per game in 2006-07 before suffering an ACL injury. He returned the following season, but struggled and ultimately signed with Russian squad Triumph Lyubertsy the next offseason.

By mid-December of 2008, he had agreed to a three-year deal with the Thunder and returned to the NBA.
