The Indiana Pacers have exercised their 2022-23 rookie scale team option for Goga Bitadze. This is the fourth-year option for Bitadze.

In three-plus seasons, Bitadze has averaged four points and 2.6 rebounds per game. The 22-year-old center is still a developing player behind Domantas Sabonis and Myles Turner for the Pacers.

Bitadze will be under contract for $4.7 million for 2022-23. He'll then be eligible for restricted free agency in the summer of 2023.
