A spokesman for the NBA team told The Washington Post that the tournament will be at a different course in 2018, after having it at Trump’s course for four straight years, but did not give a specific reason for the change.


“We’re not getting into it,” the spokesman told the Post.

The Heat is one of at least five professional sports teams who have moved their golf tournaments from Trump clubs, according to the Post. 

Trump has been feuding with NFL teams over players that kneel rather than stand as a form of protest during the national anthem. His ire has also extended to some NBA players, like Golden State Warriors player Stephen Curry, who Trump “disinvited” to the White House after Curry expressed reluctance to attend a traditional visit with the championship team.

Several professional sports teams have also stopped staying in Trump hotels, citing the president's divisiveness.
