The Los Angeles Lakers have agreed to terms with Byron Scott to be their next head coach.

Sources told ESPN.com that Scott agreed to a four-year, $17 million deal with L.A., and the former Lakers guard confirmed the agreement to KCBS-TV on Saturday night.

"It feels fantastic," he told sportscaster Jim Hill. "This is a dream come true. ... It's so unreal. I have to thank (general manager) Mitch (Kupchak), Jeanie and Jim Buss to give me this opportunity."

Scott has been the front-runner for the job since Mike D'Antoni resigned April 30. He was a three-time champion during L.A.'s Showtime era, has a close relationship with Kobe Bryant and has familiarity with the roster after having worked as an analyst last season for the Lakers' local TV station.

He's coached three NBA teams, most recently Cleveland from 2010-13.
