fferent political views than those two. But to me, friendship and loyalty are just about that. Its not about

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. Columbus Blue Jackets Jerseys . -- After reaching the postseason for the first time since 2009, the Detroit Pistons had a bit more credibility during free agency.Thats Stan Van Gundys view, at least, after his team signed guard Ish Smith and forward Jon Leuer.I think that guys look at us probably a little differently -- you know, young team on the rise, said Van Gundy, Detroits coach and team president. I think both Jon and Ish liked the idea that they were sort of playing with guys in their own age group, and even younger.The Pistons introduced Smith and Leuer on Friday, and theyll be counting on both players to add depth to the roster. Detroits long-awaited return to the playoffs was short-lived when the Pistons were swept in the first round by Cleveland, but last season was still a significant step forward.Detroit came out of the draft last month still needing to acquire a backup to point guard Reggie Jackson. Thats certainly a role Smith can fill after averaging a career-high 12.6 points in 77 games with Philadelphia and New Orleans last season. Leuer gives the Pistons a versatile big man who shot 38 percent from 3-point range a season ago with Phoenix.Smith and Leuer are both 27.Last year, I thought we had a really good year, but we were really fortunate that we didnt have injuries that set us back or anything like that, Van Gundy said. I dont know that we would have had the depth to overcome that. I feel like now, really at every position now, I feel like weve got four guys we can play at each position, because weve also got very versatile guys.The Pistons have built around center Andre Drummond, whom they drafted in 2012. They traded for Jackson in 2015 and also have added starters Marcus Morris and Tobias Harris in trades. Detroit hasnt been much of a destination lately for top free agents, with the team in a rebuilding mode, but now Van Gundy can sell a brighter future.Smith, for example, is looking forward to tossing alley-oop passes in Drummonds direction.Dre better be ready to go get lobs from the first team and the second team, Smith said. Reggie does a great job of throwing them, Im most definitely going to throw them.The move to the Pistons might bring some stability to Smiths career. He has been in the NBA six seasons, and 2013-14 (with Phoenix) is the only one in which he played exclusively with one team. Detroit will be his 10th team. He joins Louis Amundson and Drew Gooden as the only active NBA players to play for 10 teams.The 6-foot-10 Leuer averaged a career-high 8.5 points last season and has the ability to help spread the opposing defense out as a forward or even a center.Thats kind of the way the leagues going, Leuer said. Small ball and versatility is becoming a unique and effective lineup, so thats something I was able to do last year a little bit, was come in at the five. ... Definitely something I feel comfortable doing.---Follow Noah Trister at Matt Calvert Jersey . Once again Jordan Cieciwa (@FitCityJordan) and I (@LynchOnSports) go head to head in our picks.

The 18th player to shoot 60 on the tour, Jamieson settled for par on the final hole when his 15-foot birdie chip grazed the edge of the hole and stayed out. After opening with rounds of 66 and 73 to make the cut by a stroke, he had 11 birdies in the bogey-free round. FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick said Wednesday the letter he wrote to Donald Trump before Election Day was done out of a friendship that goes back many years and was not politically motivated, while Tom Brady said he preferred to focus on football and wouldnt elaborate on his relationship with him.Belichick addressed the letter during a regularly scheduled news conference held hours after the billionaire business was elected president and two days after he read it aloud at a campaign rally in New Hampshire.The letter congratulated Trump on his campaign and praised him for overcoming slanted and negative media to come out beautifully. But Belichick said he writes hundreds of notes every month and that it doesnt mean I agree with every single thing that every person thinks about politics, religion or other subjects.At the same campaign rally Monday, Trump alluded to a phone conversation with Brady in which he said the quarterback offered his support. Brady wouldnt confirm or deny that Wednesday.Im just going to talk about football this week, Brady said. I talked to my wife, she said I cant talk about politics anymore. I think thats a good decision made for our family.But when pressed, he went a little further.I just want to focus on Seattle, he said. I have a lot of relationships with a lot of people in the press and I dont think a lot of people are entitled to what my conversations are with frriends of mine or people I may speak with. Sam Vigneault Jersey. Belichick reiterated that his comments were not about making a political stance.I think anybody thats spent more than five minutes with me knows Im not a political person, Belichick said. My comments are not politically motivated. I have a friendship and loyalty to Donald. A couple of weeks ago we had Secretary of State (John) Kerry in our locker room. Hes another friend of mine. I cant imagine two people with more different political views than those two. But to me, friendship and loyalty are just about that. Its not about political or religious views.Kerry visited the Patriots locker room when they played at Pittsburgh on Oct. 23.I have multiple friendships that are important to me and thats what that was about, Belichick said. So its not about politics, its about football.When Belichick was asked follow-up questions about the letter and whether it caused any division in New Englands locker room, he repeated Seattle five times, referencing that the team is focused on preparing for Sundays game against the Seahawks.We got a huge game this week against a great football team, and a great organization, he said. And thats where it all is going forward.
