Career Details

Abramo Canka began playing basketball in his teenage years for the Tigullio Sports Team Ligure. Later, in 2016, he enrolled at Stella Azzurra Roma, the Serie B club's youth academy. Initially, he played for the under-18 team of Stella Azzurra Roma.

In his first season, he displayed amazing gameplay. However, his stats went down in the next season. Due to that, he was given on loan to Roseto Sharks in 2018. While he played for Roseto Sharks, he managed to learn different tactics and successfully implemented them.

In 2018, he got selected to represent his nation at the 2018 FIBA U16 European Championship. He played seven games in the tournament and averaged 7.1 rebounds, 1.9 steals, 2 assists, and 10.6 points per game. Sadly, the team only reached 12th place.

The team reached the tournament's finals, with Canka averaging 4.3 rebounds, 2.3 steals, 4.3 assists, and 16.8 points per game.

Sadly, all of that wasn't enough for the team to keep him as he was released from the team. In June 2020, he was signed by Lokomotiv Kuban of the VTB United League. However, he didn't play for the team as he was given on loan to the Lithuanian Basketball League's Nevezis Kedainiai team just six days after he signed the contract.
