Report: Three NBA teams won't stay at Trump hotels this season

At least three NBA teams have decided not to stay at Donald Trump-branded hotels during road trips this season, according to a report from ESPN published Tuesday night.

According to the report, which cites league sources, the three teams — the Milwaukee Bucks, Memphis Grizzlies and Dallas Mavericks — plan to stay elsewhere when traveling to New York City and Chicago to play the Knicks, Nets and Bulls.

Per the report, the Bucks attempted to cancel reservations at Chicago's Trump International Tower and Hotel for their preseason meeting with the Bulls on Oct. 3 and have other lodging plans for their two trips to Chicago during the regular season.

The report also states that the Grizzlies and Mavericks have stayed at the Trump SoHo in New York before but made reservations over the summer for other hotels in the area.

Mavericks owner Mark Cuban and Bucks co-owner Marc Lasry both supported Hillary Clinton during her presidential campaign, though after the election, Cuban said, "We all need to give President-elect Trump a chance."
