The Knicks could push that envelope by trying to get rid of Carmelo Anthony , but that's a two way trade that helps both sides. James was informed after Irving told the Cavaliers and was unaware of the guard's feelings, sources said.

Fellow American Koepka, who won last month's US Open , hit three successive birdies from the 11th hole before making his only bogey at the 16th.

Bland offset a birdie at 14 with a scrappy six at 15, but he parred safely in to be one of only nine players under par for the tournament after 36 holes as nobody managed to get round without a blue number on the card.

Poulter likes to talk but he admits his stint commentating on last year's Open - which he missed due to injury - was his lowest point on a golf course.
