A minimum of three NBA teams - the Dallas Mavericks, Milwaukee Bucks, and Memphis Grizzlies - have chosen to stop staying at Donald Trump-branded hotels while on road trips, according to ESPN's Marc Stein and Zach Lowe.

The Trump luxury hotels in question are located in New York and Chicago. Another Eastern Conference team plans to terminate its contract with the Trump SoHo in Lower Manhattan by next season, according to the report. Seven other unnamed teams told ESPN they plan to stay at Trump-branded properties this season.

Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has been an outspoken critic of the president-elect and many of the policies Trump campaigned on. Trump seemed to be aware of the blowback to his election win when he told "60 Minutes" over the weekend that he's not concerned about negative impact on his corporate brand.

"Who cares? This is big league stuff," Trump said, according to CNN. "We're going to save our country. I don't care about hotel occupancy. It's peanuts compared to what we're doing."
