The company will have a store within what would be known as Barclays Center, which is part of a planned 22-acre development near Downtown Brooklyn.

Haier America, the sales and marketing arm of the Qingdao-based white-goods giant, signed on as an associate partner of this year’s NBA Nation last month. The company inked a multi-year promotional deal with NBA in 2006.
