The remaining team, the New Orleans Pelicans of the National Basketball Association, has not publicly stated whether they intend to keep patronizing the president's hotels during this season or not.

Among the 123 teams in US baseball, basketball, football and hockey leagues surveyed by The Washington Post, all of the 105 teams that responded said their players no longer stay at Trump Hotels.

President Trump has made a point to blur the lines between politics and sports, most recently stating that he believed NFL players that protest during the national anthem should be fired and uninviting Steph Curry to the White House after Curry had already said he would not go. Those include the Pelicans, Dallas Mavericks, Indiana Pacers, Oklahoma City Thunder, Golden State Warriors, Memphis Grizzlies, Cleveland Cavaliers, Houston Rockets, Phoenix Suns, Sacramento Kings, Toronto Raptors and Washington Wizards. One team, for instance, cited logistical concerns, stating that it was hard to transport the team from one of the hotels to the arena where they were scheduled to play.
