Five days after skipping exit meetings with management over frustration with the franchise, Kristaps Porzingis told the New York Post that he loves New York, indicating he wants to remain with the Knicks.
“Of course, I love New York. I love New York,”
Porzingis said in an interview outside his Manhattan apartment complex.
Porzingis skipped exit meetings with team president Phil Jackson and general manager Steve Mills due to frustration over what he perceives as the dysfunction and drama surrounding the organization, team sources told ESPN.
He is expected to head to Latvia for the summer this week without having met with Knicks management.
Porzingis declined to comment Wednesday about his decision to skip the exit meetings.
