The Milwaukee Bucks, Memphis Grizzlies and Dallas Mavericks have stopped staying at New York’s Trump SoHo and Chicago’s Trump International Hotel and Tower when their teams play games in those cities against the Chicago Bulls, New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets, ESPN reported.
A fourth, unidentified NBA team is expected to look for other accommodations after its contract ends following the 2016-17 season. ESPN reached out to all 30 NBA teams. Some teams that are no longer staying at Trump hotels did not blame the switch on the president-elect’s politics, and were not named in the story. Other teams said they never stayed at Trump hotels.
