Synnott had a long career of professional basketball, playing in the ABL for many years as well as the Original Celtics. He moved on to play three seasons in the NBL.

Synnott may have played minor league baseball, too. There is a Robert Synnott who played for Cumberland in the Mid Atlantic League in 1931 and 1932.
