Pacers select European center with 18th pick in NBA draft

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Kevin Pritchard added one surprisingly big piece to the Indiana Pacers roster in the NBA draft.

Then he started working ahead, planning for a possible exodus of free agents and potentially being without Victor Oladipo until January.

Indiana's president of basketball operations selected 20-year-old center Goga Bitadze in the first round Thursday - a player he said he never expected to be available with the 18th overall pick - and then started cashing in chips for the future.
