   15 More Ten Day Contract Candidates (Because Apparently 101 Wasn't Enough After All)
2011-01-10

Qyntel Woods - Woods started the season with Russian team Krasnie Krylya Samara. However, for some reason, Samara barely played the guy who was the second leading scorer in the Euroleague last season. Woods averaged only 5.3 points in 4 games of Eurocup play before being released, and is currently unsigned. Since leaving the NBA, Woods has become a high quality (and expensive) player at the upper echelons of European basketball. The wild child is now a grown man (he turns 30 next month), and has realised some of the potential he once carried. If an unlikely NBA return is going to happen, now would be the time.

- Qyntel Woods * - As of right now, Woods is staying with Polish team Gydnia, but the right offer could still change that.

   The best of what's left
2010-07-30

Qyntel Woods - His NBA legacy isn't pretty; too much pot, too much legal trouble, too much dogfighting, and too little realised potential. But since leaving the NBA, Qyntel Woods has managed to established a strong career for himself. Woods has played a season and a half for Polish powerhouse Prokom Gdynia, and while the Polish league isn't amongst the best in Europe - although it's not bad - Gdynia are a perennial Euroleague team. If you're in the Euroleague, you've got a good gig, and if you do well in the Euroleague, then you'll get noticed. Woods has done especially well there this year, averaging 16.9 points, 6.2 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game, ranking third in the competition in points and seventh in rebounds. He has also averaged 14.5 points, 6.6 rebounds and 2.5 assists in only 25 minutes per game in the Polish league, and even though he's not a particularly good three point shooter, he's improved, cranking up 5 a game and hitting them at 35%.

Woods will likely not return to Prokom next season and is a free agent. But he's now faced with a problem; there's no market for him. Despite the failure of his NBA career, both on and off the court, Woods has become a star in Europe; despite the stardom he's found in Europe, no one wants to pay him. His future is up in the air. He has been connected with the Cavaliers, Wizards and Nets, as well as Real Madrid; he may yet also return to Prokom. An NBA return is not impossible.

Woods will not return to Prokom next season and will be a free agent. He has been linked to Real Madrid, but even in spite of his NBA improvements, an NBA return is not likely.
