Kristaps Porzingis will leave for Latvia on Thursday without meeting with Phil Jackson, but he said blowing off his exit meeting with the team president is not a sign he doesn’t want to play at the Garden next season.

“Of course,” Porzingis told The Post at his luxury apartment complex in Manhattan, when asked if he wants to be a Knick next year. “I love New York. I love New York.”

According to a source, the Knicks were not given an explanation behind Porzingis’ decision to skip his scheduled exit meeting with Jackson on Friday. Sources have told The Post the 21-year-old franchise pillar is upset with the way the franchise has been run — with Jackson looking to trade Carmelo Anthony, Porzingis’ mentor, and going full tilt on a triangle offense that Porzingis has publicly supported but has mixed feelings about.

On Wednesday, Porzingis declined to address why he missed the meeting with Jackson.

“It’s not the right moment to comment on anything [about it],” he said. “I don’t want to say anything.’’

According to sources, Jackson and the coaching staff have dispersed for a brief respite now that the season is over. Team brass is in the dark on why Porzingis declined to show.

Jackson said at his Friday press conference that nobody on the club was untouchable — including Porzingis. But it’s hard to imagine the Knicks getting equal value for the 7-foot-3 Latvian who has a chance to be a superstar if he gets stronger.

Phil one step closer to getting his want. He wants to be fired. He's working hard to that end.

I would do Randle and the #3 in a heartbeat. Maybe even Clarkson.

Yeah that's a no brainer, Porgs with Russell and Ingram would be a very relevant trio for the future.
