Goga Bitadze is a skilled center that can score the basketball in a variety of ways.  His ability to put the ball in the hoop may intrigue some NBA scouts and teams, but he is also playing well in the Adriatic League, as he has excelled as a rebounder and shot blocker when he is on the floor.​

That he is producing in a competitive Adriatic League even though he is considerably younger than other players there is quite an impressive feat in itself.  On the other hand, questions remain about his athleticism.  Still, he is a very productive big man, especially for a player his age, as he could go in the mid to late first round range in 2019.
