Boston Buzzards Press Releases

  • Buzzards Ink Morrison to 6-Year Max +

    July 23, 2021: Boston, MA -- The Boston Buzzards have announced that they have agreed to terms with 24 year old SF/PF Octavio Morrison for a league-maximum $106.71 million over the next six seasons. Jason Warnke, the team's General Manager, made no secret that bringing their most promising prospect back to Boston for the long term was the Buzzard's most pressing offseason concern. While many other teams offered to open up their pocket books for the 6'8 forward, it was the much larger maximum that Boston was able to offer that tipped the scales in the Bean Bird's favor. Many pundits across the league have claimed that such a large contract is a gross overpayment for a player who has yet Read More
  • Campbell Named 2020 Team MVP, Sources Question Future +

    5/17/2021: Boston, MA -- The surprise acquisition of the then 28 year old All-Star center Malik Campbell from the Philadelphia Americans no doubt charged up the entire Boston Buzzard fan base before the start of the 2020 season. It was thought the addition of another top of the line starter without sacrificing any additional current talent in return would be a sure fire way for the Bean Birds to repeat with another 60-win season and make a deeper drive in the play-offs. Unfortunately, this was not the case, as the Buzzard season came to an abrupt halt last night in the seventh game in the second round against the Arizona Thunderbirds. While they did manage another 50 win season, their 52 Read More
  • Buzzards Add Some Vitamin D: Lenny Davis Heading to Boston in Deadline Deal +

    2/18/2021 -- Boston, MA: With the Boston Buzzards all knotted up with the Toronto Huskies and London Knights in the race for the National East Division lead, many anticipated an arms race as we neared the 2021 OBWL trade deadline. Many rumors were flying around various league sources. However, when the deadline came and went, only the Bean Birds made a move in an effort to bolster their team and add some depth. The Buzzard Brass made the announcement in a post game news conference after a 102-84 win on the road against the Las Vegas Blackjacks. A deal was struck with Robert Sheppard, the General Manager of the Kentucky Stallions that would send 2019 All-Star power forward Lenny Davis to Read More
  • Buzzards Enter 2020 Questioning the New Staff +

    July 30, 2020: Boston, MA -- The Boston Buzzards enter the 2020 preseason with pretty much the exact same team that finished the 2019 season 60-20, leading the National Conference between being bounced from the play-offs from division rival London Knights four games to two in the second round of the postseason. In fact, the team may even look better than last year on paper, as they have added all-star center, Malik Campbell, without giving up any players of substance in their most recent sign-and-trade deal with the Philadelphia Americans. However, there are still major concerns in Beantown and they revolve around the coaching staff, led by new arrival and head coach, Ervin Dickinson. Dickinson, who has led the Chicago Blaze Read More
  • Boston Brash - Free Agency Fireworks, GM Sounds Off +

    July 20, 2020: Boston, MA -- In a surprising move, the Boston Buzzards announced that they agreed in principle to acquire All-Star Center, Malik Campbell from the Philadelphia Americans in a sign-and-trade deal that sent several Boston back-ups and the recently acquired Detroit Muscle 2021 first round draft pick to The Quaker City. The initial quiet free agency period for the Bean Birds quickly turned into mayhem, as many in the media and in the OBWL community cried foul when the deal was made public. Some simply claimed that Boston GM Jason Warnke had taken long-time colleague and general manager of the Americans, Jay Amado, to the cleaners. Others, such as Nick Simpson, head brass of the Arizona Thunderbirds and GM Read More
  • Buzzards Pull Trade Trigger on Draft Day, Again +

    2020 Draft Day: Boston, MA -- It was reported on June 24th that it was highly likely that the Boston Buzzards would select California University point guard Xander Remington with the second overall pick in the 2020 OBWL Rookie Draft. Right after the consensus #1 overall pick, Hobert Frisby, was confirmed by Tom Lacher and the announcement was made by Commissioner Eric Stelle, the Buzzards confirmed reports and selected Remington with the second pick in the draft. At this point, most of the league thought that Remington would remain a Buzzard. What was speculated but widely unexpected, was that GM Jason Warnke would once again trade down in the draft in an attempt to acquire the player that up until just Read More
  • Buzzards Weigh 2020 Draft Day Options +

    June 24, 2020: Boston, MA -- The Boston Buzzards are hard at work deciphering and analyzing the 100 amateur basketball players who have declared themselves eligible for the 2020 OBWL Rookie Draft. As usual, General Manager Jason Warnke is both making and taking phone calls from other executives from around the league, in an effort to both gain intelligence as well as potentially make several draft day deals that the Bean Bird's manager has been known to make. This year, Boston has three selections in the first round, and none in the second. The Buzzards, despite posting a franchise-record 60 wins in 2020, hold the second overall pick in the draft. In addition, they will also be selecting 23 and 27, Read More
  • Buzzards Buy-Out Pyles +

    June 18, 2020: Boston, MA -- The Boston Buzzards parted ways with Jerald Pyles today when they announced that they would buy out the remaining two years on his $13 million contract. Pyles was acquired prior to the 2019 season from the San Diego Storm. He was sent to Bean Town along with Dallas Hunt in order to match the salary of Everett Dolinish, who was shipped off to San Diego. In exchange for Dolinish and opportunity to salary-dump, the San Diego Storm sent the Buzzards their first round draft pick in 2020. San Diego struggled, finishing 10-70, and it was just announced this week after the OBWL front office conducted the lottery that Boston would be selecting #2 overall in Read More
  • Buzzards Awards Announced +

    May 10, 2020: Boston MA -- The Boston Buzzards have named Michael Loftin the team's Most Valuable Player for the 2019-2020 season. This is his first team honor since being drafted by the Buzzards with the 6th pick in the 2012 OBWL Rookie Draft. This was the very same amateur draft that the Bean Birds also added crowd-favorite Lionel Henry and Patrick Jackson, two other starters from this historic 60-win team. Loftin, in 33.4 minutes a night this season, led a balanced attack for the Buzzards. He averaged 18.5 points per game on 43.7% shooting (52.3% TSP) while pulling down 7.4 rebounds and dishing out 3.1 assists. He also chipped in solid defense both in the post and on the perimeter.

    Buzzards earn franchise season record 58th win, eye 60 with four games remaining in the regular season April 9, 2020 --Boston, MA: The Boston Buzzards returned home mid-day yesterday, heading home from Arizona after back-to-back road wins against the Thunderbirds in the desert. Both games came down to the wire, each contest decided by a mere two points. In the first, an 87-85 victory for the Bean Birds, Lionel Henry caught an awkward pass from Patrick Jackson at the free throw line, hitting a quick set shot at the buzzer. On the second night, Lionel Henry took on the role of play maker, dishing off to Curtis Swiger on the right wing where he drained the mid-range jumper with 18 Read More
