Contacted by The Post on Saturday, Woodson said he hadn’t heard from the Knicks yet, but would love to. Woodson, who has been Doc Rivers’ top assistant with the Clippers the past four seasons, was the Knicks’ most successful head coach since Jeff Van Gundy, guiding them to their most recent playoff berth, in 2012-13, when the club posted a 54-28 record. “I don’t want to hide the fact I’d love to be back,’’ Woodson told The Post in a phone interview. “I’d like to finish what I started. At the end of the day, you want to come to New York, based on my body of work there. I want it to be mutual. I want them to want me. I hope they call me.’’

“I’m gonna be right there [points about 15 rows back]. You know where [Kanter’s manager] Hilmi [Cinar] sits? I thought I’m gonna get seats right there [points courtside]. They gave me sears up there. It’s messed up. It’s OK.” They can’t put you on the big board. “They can’t?” Tampering. “What does that mean?” Because you’re still on the Knicks. “Am I? Am I?” Are you going to opt out? You are technically on the Knicks. “Until July 1, yes. We’ll talk to teams. We’ll see.” But yes, it’s tampering. I asked.
