BROOKLYN - Although there's an NBA lockout, the Nets basketball team is working to build bridges in the borough it will soon call home.

The Nets, which will arrive in Brooklyn in 2012 once the brand-new Barclays Center opens, have been giving away team goodies, unveiled a 40-foot interactive trailer that allows people young and old to stay fit and are serving Thanksgiving meals to 200 people with disabilities.

"If you can name and think about it, we'll be a part of the community. If people in the community reach out and ask, we'll be there," says Billy King, the Nets' general manager.
