  • Buzzards Re-Load for 2027 in Free Agency +

    August 1, 2027 -- Boston, MA: The Boston Buzzards, coming off an improbable run to the OBWL Finals in 2026 as the fifth seed out of the National Conference, had been relatively quiet this offseason until the end of July when the team agreed to terms with veteran PF Richard Burke II and PG/SG Jose Lakes. The moves were hardly unexpected, as the team was unable to retain veteran backcourt defender Jerrold Dean and swing guard Abe Gutierrez. The staff had had also been vocal all season about making an upgrade at the power forward slot, where a serviceable but inconsistent young Ben Bonilla was stationed. Jerrold Dean, who fell out of favor with General Manager Jason Warnke throughout the 2026 Read More
  • Is Boston Back? Buzzards Make Free Agency Splash +

    BOSTON BUZZARDS MAKE SEVERAL OFFSEASON MOVES October 21, 2025 – Boston, MA: General Manager Jason Warnke and the rest of the Boston Brass have been vocal about playing the waiting game when it came time to their rebuild that they started in the 2022 season. Having a roster that was previously loaded with the large salary commitments to Michael Loftin and Patrick Jackson, the Buzzards had been patiently waiting to pounce during this year’s free agency period when over $36 million in cap space could be deployed on roster upgrades. Some pundits around the league wondered if Warnke was simply playing lip service about all of the free agents that he would be targeting. Obviously, it is usually best to remain Read More
  • Boston Bids Farewell to Long-Time Buzzard +

    10/28/2024: Boston, MA: The Boston Buzzards announced that veteran 6th Man, Patrick Jackson, would not make the final roster for the upcoming OBWL season. P-Jack, who has spent his entire 12-year career with the Bean Birds, was originally drafted by the Buzzards with the 12th pick of the 2012 OBWL Rookie Draft out of Penn State. This draft is also where Boston selected two other cornerstones of the Buzzard franchise, PF/C Lionel Henry (Drafted 19th) and SG/SF Michael Loftin (Drafted 6th). Henry played his first 8 seasons with Boston, and Loftin remains on the roster about to start his 13th season in Beantown. While Patrick Jackson only started 231 of his 776 regular season games in Boston, he was beloved Read More
  • James Hayward: Making a Name for Himself in Boston +

    February 22, 2024:Boston, MA – In what can only be defined as a mediocre season so far, the Boston Buzzards have gone with a much smaller, more nimble line-up than they have traditionally fielded in the past. This change has given former second round pick, James Hayward, an opportunity to quietly make a name for himself in Beantown. Hayward, a 23 year-old sophomore who was drafted with the 36th pick in the 2023 Rookie Draft, has started all but one of the first 52 games on the season this year. In his 29.1 minutes, he has filled the role of the Glue Guy, dropping in 8.5 points, grabbing 5.4 rebounds, dishing out 2.7 assists, and generating 1.2 steals on a true Read More
  • Buzzards Bring Back Watts and Swiger +

    July 25, 2023 -- Boston, MA: Sources close to the Buzzard's organization were concerned heading into free agency. Owner Alfonzo Boylan had recently been vocal in his disappointment about the 2022 season, and had indicated several times that he would once again be slashing the Boston budget , and refused to write blank checks for mediocre play. In fact, over the last several seasons, upper management have seen their resources drop from over $103.3 million in 2021, down to just $89.5 million this season. With two critical free agents, David Watts and Curtis Swiger, openly discussing their options with other teams around the league, General Manager Jason Warnke was nervous that they would lose two of their starters just one year removed Read More
  • Coach Cortina Cut, Buzzards Add Eli Dyer to Staff +

    October 17, 2023 -- Boston, MA: In what may seem like an inconsequential or minor move, General Manager Jason Warnke announced this afternoon that the Boston Buzzards would be parting ways with assistant coach Celino Cortina, who would have been on the last year of a deal with a reported $247,426. Cortina, who had been with the Buzzards since 2017, was known as a defensive specialist, focusing on both developing players on the defensively as well as crafting game plans to help thwart the opposing team's best offensive players. Head Coach Allan Santos, however, had been rumored to butt heads with the 59 year old assistant, and given that the organization was only obligated to cover Cortina's salary for one more Read More
  • Buzzards Add Front Court Depth, Sign Veteran Journeyman +

    Boston, MA: July 28, 2022 -- The Boston Buzzards agreed to terms with veteran journeyman and back-up center, Jack Miley, on a one-year contract worth a reported $1.5 million. Miley, who has started 228 games over the last three seasons with the Honolulu Inferno and Sacramento Snipers will likely back up 25 year-old David Watts. Watts is set to start the season as the Bean Birds starting center, after the team traded All-Star Louis Lynse to the Indiana Invaders for an aged Oscar Bixby and rookie PF/C Ben Bonilla. "Miley has an interesting skill set," commented General Manager Jason Warnke. "He plays solid defense down on the block and is relatively agile for a near seven-footer. His ability to leap is Read More
  • A New Recipe in Town: Herb Roasted Davis +

    Lenny Davis Abruptly Cuts Off Negotiations to Join Los Angeles, Buzzards Scramble to Sign Daniel Herb July 26, 2022: Boston, MA -- The Boston Buzzards front office were caught off-guard when they learned that their 2021 Team MVP, Lenny Davis, had signed a 5-year, $70.29 million deal to join the Los Angeles Chaos next season. This headline surprised Jason Warnke, General Manager of the Boston Buzzards, since it had been less than 24 hours since Lenny had left Warnke's office seriously considering a deal that would have been valued around $55 million. In fact, it was a foregone conclusion that Davis would be back in a Bean Bird uniform, as both Lenny and his agent had communicated that Boston had delivered Read More
  • Buzzards Hire Youngest head Coach in History of the OBWL +

    June 23, 2022: Boston, MA -- The Boston Buzzards announced this afternoon that they have agreed to terms with 32-year old Allan Santos, who will become the youngest Head Coach in professional basketball history. What makes this 5-year, $26.75 million deal even more interesting is that Santos has never coached a single game in his life. In fact, he has never even assumed the role of assistant coach at the professional level. The Buzzards front office found the young basketball mind over a decade ago when Santos graduated in just three years from Harvard University in May of 2011. This was the first year that the Online Basketball World League would begin, and General Manager Jason Warnke decided to bring in Read More
  • Buzzards Sack Assistant Coach Matthew Parker +

    June 20, 2022 -- Boston, MA: Boston Brass, disappointing with their 46-34 record in 2021 and abysmal second round sweep by the South Florida Sharks in the postseason announced that they have fired 48 year-old Assistant Coach, Matthew Parker, effective immediately. The move opened up a second coaching slot on the bench, as Head Coach Ervin Dickinson's contract had expired at season's end. Both Parker and Dickinson were signed for the 2020 season, after the team failed to ink an extension with their previous Head Coach, Layne Hensley, who opted to take on a new challenge as top boss of the Minnesota Marauders. The defection came after improving the Bean Bird record from 48 wins in 2017 to 50 in 2018, Read More
