The team is part of the Women's Blue Chip League and will also change its logo, a black and red bomb with basketball grooves.
The team will announce a new name this week. The team has already deactivated its Facebook page and Twitter account, and will no longer be using its original website, BostonBombersBasketball.com.
"Our fans were not happy with the name," a team spokesperson told Gawker.
