Bloomberg: Barclays Center, Nets To Create 2,000 Jobs in Brooklyn

Nets Basketball

Mayor Michael Bloomberg, already a Brooklyn Nets season ticket-holder, visited Barclays Center Thursday morning to announce that the Nets and the arena will put 2,000 people to work, most as full-time employees. He also announced that the city will hold two job fairs this summer to fill those positions. The jobs number is somewhat larger than originally estimated.

The Nets' 150 business staffers are already set up at MetroTech, Bruce Ratner's office complex a subway stop away from the arena. The basketball operations staff will continue to come to work at the PNY Center in East Rutherford for another year. The Nets are expected to build a new training facility closer to Brooklyn sometime in the next two years.
