The Cavs were on the list of teams that the Washington Post put together, and they're not the team that has continued the relationship - they ceased booking Trump rooms at the end of last season. His team quit using Trump SoHo in 2016.

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. With the many controversial statements and policies that Trump has pushed for, as a candidate and while serving as president, organizations across the country have distanced themselves from his properties or other brands.
