Goga Bitadze
20-Year-Old ForwardF
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Out of the country of Georgia, Bitadze was drafted 18th overall by the Pacers. He boasts the size (7-feet, 258 pounds) and skillset of a modern NBA center with the ability to score inside and out. Bitadze also has shown the ability to be a strong interior defender and shot-blocker, but lacks the verticality of some big men in the league. He's just 20 years old, but like many international prospects, has been a professional basketball player for a long time. Bitadze went pro in 2015-16, and he played 51 games and made 29 starts between two separate teams last season, averaging 13.9 points, 6.3 rebounds, 1.9 blocks and 1.1 assists in 23.4 minutes. His shooting splits were impressive, as the big man shot 57.1 percent from the field, 67.9 percent from the charity stripe, and went 36-of-90 (40.0 percent) from distance. Myles Turner and Domantas Sabonis are ahead of the rookie in the rotation, but it appears Bitadze will have the first crack at the backup center role. While it's unlikely he'll hold standard league fantasy relevance, he makes for an intriguing deep league or dynasty option as a young big who can block shots and hit threes. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a two-year, $5.77 million contract with the Pacers in July of 2019.
Scores 14 points in NBA debut

October 15, 2019
Bitadze totaled 14 points (6-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt), four rebounds, two assists, and one block in 24 minutes during Tuesday's 119-111 loss to the Timberwolves.
ANALYSIS
Bitadze showed off his shooting range in his first NBA appearance. However, he also finished with six turnovers and four fouls. Starting big men Myles Turner and Domantas Sabonis each saw 17 minutes in this one, so Bitadze likely shouldn't be expected to see such a substantial load of playing time once the regular season starts.
