The Los Angeles Lakers and Luke Walton agreed to terms for Walton to be the team’s next head coach, Bleacher Report reported late Friday.

The Lakers confirmed the announcement in a tweet Friday night.

Walton was on the top of the Lakers’ coaching candidate list and they have found their top prize. Walton will likely finish out the season with the Golden State Warriors and then take over immediately.

This is huge news for the Lakers who are completely starting over from scratch and entering a completely new era of basketball. But the front office has made a crazy splash.
