The Croatian Nenad Canak will help Pero Antic on the power forward position this season. This became clear yesterday night when Canak put his signature under a one-year-contract with Lukoil Academic.
Canak is familiar among the Bulgarian audience as he was wearing the jersey of Alba Berlin during the last two years.
Nenad Canak was born on April 24 1976 in Zagreb but has a Serbian passport. He started his career in Partizan Belgrade in 1992 and stayed there two seasons. After that in the period between 1996-1999 Canak was in the lines of the Serbian Sparta Subotica. Then he came back again to wear the jersey of Partizan until 2003, demonstrating very good skills and participating in three tournaments – the Serbian National Championship, the Adriatic League and the Euroleague. In 2002 he made a double-double, winning both the national championship and the cup of Serbia.
The career of the power forward continued in Vojvodina Novi Sad (2003-2004) and in the Greek Makedonikos (2004-2005). He has registered participation in all club tournaments in Europe – FIBA Europe with Vojvodina, and ULEB Cup with Makedonikos and Alba Berlin.
In the summer of 2005 Nenad returned to Belgrade in the lines of Avala Belgrade, but soon after he signed a contract with ALBA Berlin. During his first season in Germany he scored an average of 9,3 points, 3,2 rebounds and 1,3 assists in 43 games of the Bundesliga and an average of 8,3 points, 4,1 rebounds in 10 games in the ULEB Cup competition. In April 2007 Canak suffered an injury and had been recovering in the next 2 months. Season 2006-2007 he took part in 11 games of ULEB and made an average of 5,6 points and 2,0 rebounds per game, while in the Bundesliga he had 33 games with 4,8 points per game. Wearing the jersey of Alba Berlin, the forward won the cup of Germany in 2006.
Nenad Canak is supposed to arrive in Sofia next week to join his new teammates from Lukoil Academic. He will come with his whole family – his wife Jovanka and their three sons – Luka (6 years old), Kosta (3 years old) and Marko (1 year old). At the moment they are waiting for visas to be able to enter Bulgaria.
