As New York Knicks team president Phil Jackson continues to publicly push Carmelo Anthony to waive his no-trade clause, he is also reportedly damaging his All-Star’s trade value around the league.

“Phil made a statement basically that Carmelo’s a losing type of player. Well, if he’s a loser for the Knicks, he’s going to be a winner someplace else? That obviously didn’t help,” an Eastern Conference executive told Fred Kerber of the New York Post.

Another executive said Jackson’s public comments have harmed Anthony’s trade value “tremendously.”
