Three NBA teams, the Milwaukee Bucks, Memphis Grizzlies and Dallas Mavericks, have stopped staying at Donald Trump-branded hotels while on the road, according to an ESPN report.

Some NBA teams regularly stay at Trump-branded hotels in New York and Chicago when playing away-games against the New York Knicks, Brooklyn Nets and Chicago Bulls.

The Bucks previously stayed at the Trump International Tower and Hotel in Chicago while playing the Bulls in preseason games, although the team tried to cancel its reservations, according to the ESPN report. Milwaukee has opted for other hotel options in Chicago for regular season games.

The Mavericks are owned by Mark Cuban, a vocal critic of the Republican nominee throughout the campaign. Bucks co-owner Marc Lasry supported Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

“We all need to give president-elect Trump a chance,” Cuban said after the election. “Support the good. Lobby against what we disagree on. No one is bigger than us all.”

Other teams, however, have kept their reservations at Trump hotels throughout the remainder of the season.
