Poeta joined local club Pallacanestro Salerno in the lower divisions, playing 5 seasons before joining Prima Veroli of the third division. With Veroli he scored 51 points in a 7 November 2005 114-105 victory against Forlì.
He moved to first division Serie A club Teramo Basket in 2006. During the 2008-09 season he led the team, coached by former Salerno coach Andrea Capobianco ‹See Tfd›(in Italian), to the league play-offs.
He then joined Virtus Bologna where he had two successful seasons, reaching the play-offs twice and being appointed captain. However after a difficult 2012-13 season where the team finished two places above last place the management decided to change the side, appointing young Matteo Imbrò ‹See Tfd›(in Italian) as the starting point guard. Poeta found himself frozen out of the team, rescinding his contract in November 2013.
His first participation in basketball was as a scorekeeper for home town club Polisportiva Battipagliese where his father Franco was a press officer. He later played for the team at youth level.
