Some Phoenix Suns fan is going to be surprised on Tuesday.

That’s the day that Suns forward Josh Jackson will be inviting one lucky fan to accompany him to the 2018 NBA Draft Lottery in Chicago.

Suns broadcaster Kevin Ray, the Gorilla, and the Solar Squad will join Jackson for the invitation tomorrow. He’ll play host and tour guide prior to the NBA Draft Lottery on May 15th.

Last year Suns superfan Noah Smith, a student at Navarette Elementary School in Chandler Arizona, joined Devin Booker at the Draft Lottery. The pair returned to Arizona with the number four overall pick that was used to draft Jackson.

In 2015 Booker and Jenna Warren were at the Draft Lottery in New York City. The Suns also drafted at number four that year, using the pick on Dragan Bender.

Will this be the year Phoenix drafts number one overall for the first time in franchise history? We’ll see. Bring it home, Josh Jackson plus one.
