In 1980, Boynes was made available in the NBA expansion draft in which he was selected by the Dallas Mavericks.[4] He was part of the starting lineup for the Mavs' first NBA game in 1980, in which he top-scored with 21 points in a 103-92 victory over the San Antonio Spurs.[5]

He played for Fenerbahçe Istanbul from Turkey on 1983-84 season in Turkish Basketball League.[6]
