Three NBA teams reportedly will no longer stay at Trump-brand hotels


NBA teams the Milwaukee Bucks, Memphis Grizzlies and Dallas Mavericks have stopped staying at Donald Trump-branded hotels, sources told ESPN.

The Bucks reportedly stayed at Trump International Tower and Hotel in Chicago during the pre-season after they tried to cancel at the last minute and ran into complications. The team has already made new plans for its regular-season games against the Chicago Bulls. 

The Grizzlies and Mavericks had stayed at Trump SoHo in New York, but have found other hotels for this season.

Mark Cuban, owner of the Mavericks, endorsed Hillary Clinton.

But after Trump's win, he adopted a more conciliatory tone.

Other NBA figures have criticized Trump, like Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr.

Detroit Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy called Trump "brazenly racist."

NBA and Trump SoHo no longer a thing?

ESPN reported "several" teams said that for this season they were not staying at Trump SoHo, a common destination when playing the New York Knicks or Brooklyn Nets -- but that the decision wasn't made for political reasons. 

Other teams said they had never stayed there.
