Betweed 2010 to 2014, Hanke played for the Swedish team Norrköping Dolphins. In the 2012-2013 season he played fourteen games and averaged 3.6 points and 2.9 rebounds per game. He then moved to the Gießen 46ers of the German Pro A, but only competed in the preseason. Hanke played eight games for KTP-Basket of the Finnish Korisliiga where he averaged 6.9 points and 4.0 rebounds per game. In July 2014, he returned to Sweden and signed with eco Örebro Basket.[5]
