Janković played in the 2016 NBA Summer League, with the Summer League squad of the New Orleans Pelicans before signing with the Spanish Liga ACB club Valencia. On October 31, 2016, he was loaned to the Greek club Aris B.C., for the rest of the season while the next year he returned to Spain to play with Andorra. He spent the entire Greek League 2018–19 season with Holargos, averaging a career-high 13.8 points, 5.4 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game. He moved on to AEK B.C. for the next couple years before joining PAOK B.C. this season.
