For the second year in a row, Phoenix Suns star Devin Booker hits a home run with his plus one for the NBA Draft Lottery.

The future of the Phoenix franchise was at Navarrette Elementary School in Chandler, Arizona on Friday to extend an invitation to a student for next week’s event.

Noah Smith, a Special Olympics athlete and Suns superfan was presented with the opportunity at the conclusion of an NBA Fit assembly. He’ll be joined by his brother Brad, a mentor for Noah who shares a love of the Phoenix Suns.

Last season another Suns superfan joined Booker in New York City. Jenna Warren was with Booker when Phoenix learned they were awarded the number four pick in the 2016 NBA Draft.

The 2017 NBA Draft Lottery will take place on Tuesday, May 16th at 8pm ET. The Suns have a 19.9% chance of landing the number one overall pick.

Bring us luck, Noah!
