Raptors will avoid staying at Trump hotels during upcoming National Basketball Association season

Not a single team confirmed its players stay at Trump properties.

Professional sports teams across the USA have stopped staying at Trump hotels, according to a new investigation by The Washington Post released Thursday. But it's unclear if the New Orleans Pelicans, who've also stayed at the once-popular spot for pro teams, will be in that number. The Washington Post reached out to all teams in those three leagues and the NFL (that's 123 teams altogether) and found at least 16 no longer stay at Trump hotels while on the road.

The newspaper reported that 16 of the 17 NFL, NBA, MLB and National Hockey League teams that stayed at Trump hotels in recent years confirmed they will be checking in at other properties when traveling. 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.

It's reasonable to assume, then, that some of these teams made similar calculations, and pulled out of Trump's properties at least partially because of the president's demeanor.

Kerr and his team used to spend about $20,000 per night at hotels like the Trump SoHo in Manhattan.

Trump did recently welcome the defending champion Pittsburgh Penguins to the White House, but his relationship with the NFL has suffered for his criticism of players sitting or kneeling during the national anthem.

The Post report said that the Raptors were one of five teams who dropped the Trump SoHo from their travel plans this past summer. The boycott he's promoting doesn't seem to be picking up any steam - the same can not be said for how his presidency is affecting his businesses.

After the presidential election, Bucks player Jabari Parker told Sporting News that he was "proud" to not stay at Trump's hotels. 'He ran his campaign on hate. The trend started before Trump denounced football players who refuse to stand for the National Anthem. I was named by a Muslim man. "She was paid less because she was a woman".
