  • Earlier this summer, Tyrone Johnson and Myles Davis, two of the top guards in New Jersey, openly entertained the idea of playing together at Plainfield High School.

    Now neither one will.

    The Villanova-bound Johnson earlier transferred to Montrose Christian, and now Davis has moved to Fitchburg (Mass.) Notre Dame Prep.

    “Yes, I’m here now,” the 6-foot-2, 180-pound Davis said Sunday by text.

    Davis’ father, Sam, said Notre Dame Prep was the best option for his son.

    NEW YORK — Isiah Thomas says he believes LeBron James seriously considered joining the Knicks and that the “world” would have been “curious” to see what he could have done in New York.

    “I still think the world would’ve been interested to see if he would’ve [helped the Knicks win a title],” Thomas said outside Arthur Ashe Stadium Saturday night after watching Novak Djokovic beat James Blake in the third round of the U.S. Open.

    “I still think the curiosity factor and him coming to New York and being a part of the Knicks, I think that…people would’ve just been drawn to watch to see if he could do it.”

    Asked if he thinks LeBron seriously considered joining the Knicks, Thomas, who was part of the Knicks’ recruiting team for King James, said, “Yeah, I think so.”

    He added: “I think like everybody else we wanted him to come to New York but I think they’ll do well in Miami. They got a great team and I think everybody will be watching to see if they can put it together and win.”

    Uncommitted senior wing Jermaine Sanders of Rice High School and Rutgers-bound forward Kadeem Jack of South Kent (Conn.) helped lead Team NYC to a 74-65 victory over Turkish U19 champions Efes Pilsen on Thursday for the World Basketball Festival championship in Istanbul, Turkey.

    The 6-foot-5 Sanders led all scorers with 21 points and the 6-9 Jack posted 18 points and 11 rebounds. Corey Edwards of Christ the King added eight assists.

    Sanders and Jack were named Co-MVPs.
