Nets' New Arena Reportedly To Be Called "Barclays Center"

The New York Post reports that London-based Barclays Bank has agreed to pay the team hundreds of millions of dollars over the next 20 years for the naming rights of their future Brooklyn home.

It would be the most lucrative deal ever for an arena in the U.S. Barclays wants to build its US brand.

An official announcement is expected tomorrow. The arena is scheduled to open in time for the 2009-2010 season.
