Bitadze has been granted a visa and is now eligible to play for the Pacers. Hailing from the country of Georgia, Bitadze needed to secure a visa before coming to the United States for work. Though he's technically been on the Pacers' summer league roster, he has yet to play in a game due to the issue. However, it's possible he takes the floor for the team at some point during the LVSL. As of Friday, the rookie is in Indiana, so it seems unlikely he'll participate in Friday's game against the Clippers. But Bitadze might be available for the playoffs, which start Saturday.
Bitadze is on the Pacers' summer league roster. The 18th overall pick in the 2019 Draft, Bitadze will showcase his skillset during summer league. Though not a top-tier athlete, Bitadze has the inside-out ability of a modern NBA big. He'll hope to secure a backup role with the Pacers behind Myles Turner and Domantas Sabonis.
