Well, so much for having to wait on LeBron James' decision. His agency Klutch Sports just announced it on Twitter.

As many expected, LeBron is heading to LA. He has agreed to a four-year, $154-million contract with the Los Angeles Lakers.

It appears that James chose the Lakers over the Cleveland Cavaliers, although the Philadelphia 76ers did make a push late.

"LeBron James, four-time NBA MVP, three-time NBA Finals MVP, fourteen-time NBA All-Star, and two-time Olympic gold medalist has agreed to a four-year $154 million contract with the Los Angeles Lakers," read the release from Klutch Sports.

Now that LeBron is in LA, he'll have to get past the Golden State Warriors in order to reach the NBA Finals and keep his streak of eight straight Finals appearances alive.

He'll need some help to do so. We'll see if Kawhi Leonard is the next domino to fall for Los Angeles. It is no secret the Lakers want to pair him with James.

Boogie Cousins could also be an option. The Lakers are rumored to be interested in him for a short-term max deal.

Stay tuned for more.
