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.

Most of the teams National Basketball Association teams that have recently stopped saying at Trump properties did so after the 2016-17 season, it added.

Most of the teams stopped visiting Trump properties within the past year, while others like the NBA's Dallas Mavericks and Indiana Pacers reportedly began staying elsewhere as early as 2014.
