Qyntel Deon Woods (born February 16, 1981) is an American former professional basketball player. He played mainly at the small forward position, but he also played at the shooting guard position, on occasion.
Qyntel grew up in the Mallory Heights neighborhood. After attending Carver High School, he spent one season of college basketball each at Moberly Area Community College and Northeast Mississippi Community College. Coming out of college, Woods was known to pro scouts as a player with exceptional potential (and was sometimes compared to Tracy McGrady), but with a history of off-court problems. He was an early entry candidate in the 2002 NBA Draft, and he had committed to play at the University of Memphis, before making himself available for draft selection.
Woods was selected by the NBA’s Portland Trail Blazers, with the 21st pick of the 2002 NBA draft. In his first two seasons with the Trail Blazers, Woods played in 115 games (53 and 62 respectively), averaging 2.4 and 3.6 points per game, and appearing sparingly in the 2003 postseason. Woods signed a two-year contract with Greek Basket League team Olympiacos on July 16, 2007. In 10 appearances in the Greek League regular season, he averaged 12.5 points per game in 26.3 minutes per game
