Mike Woodson said he still hopes to talk to Phil Jackson about remaining as head coach next season, but wouldn’t say if he will help the Knicks team president conduct exit meetings Thursday and Friday with the players.

Woodson said he’d like to find out his status “soon” and he likely will in the next 48 hours.

Woodson is not expected to be retained to finish the final year of his contract and almost assuredly coached his final game Wednesday in a 95-92 win over Toronto, going out on a four-game winning streak. That Woodson said he “won’t comment’’ on whether he’ll join Jackson for the exit meetings spoke volumes about his tenuous status.

Despite guiding the Knicks to a 37-45 record this season, Woodson showed his swashbuckling side when he said, before Wednesday’s game, he still thinks he’s “the only guy’’ for this job.

“If they bring me back, I’m going to make damn sure this doesn’t happen again,’’ Woodson said. “I hope [I’ll know] soon. There’s been enough said about my job all year from you guys. Hopefully soon I’ll know my destination on where I’m going to be.’’

Woodson has one year left on his pact at about $3.3 million. The Knicks’ failure to make the playoffs after last season’s 54-28 gem has him on the firing line, especially with the notion Jackson wants to bring in a new coach to mold in his image.

As Jackson left the Garden Wednesday night, he waved to a small group of media waiting for him at his van but declined to answer questions.

J.R. Smith came to Woodson’s defense after the game.

“I think he’s in a tough situation, a situation he’s been in all year,’’ Smith said. “Not knowing his place or where he’s going to be, whether going to be here or not here. I hate it has to be him because he’s a great person and great coach. I don’t know what it is last year from this year. You get so many praises then so many [slights], it’s amazing.’’

Woodson thinks he should come back because of all the injuries that peppered this disastrous season.
