Samardžiski started career at KK Zmaj Beograd. He then played with KK FMP for five years (2005–2010). In August 2010, he signed for Olin Edirne of Turkey. In May 2011 he signed with BC Lietuvos Rytas in Lithuania. In January 2013 he returned to Adriatic league by signing a contract with Crvena zvezda until the end of 2012–13 season. 
Samardžiski plays for the Macedonian national team. He was a member of the team at the EuroBasket 2009 and he was also a key member of team that reached the semi-finals at the EuroBasket 2011, averaging 5.8 points per game throughout the tournament and ending up among the top ten shot blockers. On the 21st of July,Samardžiski was named the new captain of the Macedonian national team, after the withdrawal of Pero Antic.
Before the EuroBasket 2011, Samardžiski's greatest flaw was considered to be his inability to dunk, despite him being 2.14m tall. However, in the semi-finals against Spain, where he replaced the injured Todor Gečevski as starting center, he dunked the ball twice against Spanish centers Pau and Mark Gasol. Samardžiski had a memorable game, scoring 12 points, his highest total in the tournament, and adding five rebounds.
