Qyntel Woods signed with Red Wings Samara

One of the Euroleague's top performers from a season ago is taking his game to the Eurocup with the announcement Monday that the newest Russian club in the competition, Krasnye Krylia, has signed forward Qyntel Woods to a one-season contract.

Woods (203, 29) led Asseco Prokom Gdynia to the Euroleague Playoffs last season with team-high averages of 16.9 points and 6.2 rebounds. He was the second-best scorer in the competition and the sixth-ranked player overall according to performance index rating. Woods is a gifted player for his size, able to run the floor, dribble and finish like a guard despite often holding down the power forward position. His arrival to Krasnye Krylia should immediately boost the team's chances in Group H.

Woods played just four games previously in the Eurocup, during the 2008-09 season, averaging 14.3 points, 4.3 rebounds and 2.3 assists for Fortitudo Bologna before moving in mid-season to join Prokom in the Euroleague. Previously, Woods had played in Portland, Miami and New York of the NBA, as well as with Olympiacos of Greece in the Euroleague. Krasnye Krylia hosts Pepsi Caserta in their Group H opener on Tuesday, which is also the first game to tip off in the 2010-11 Eurocup season. It was not clear whether Woods would arrive and be registered in time for Tuesday's game.
