Professional soccer in Sacramento could be getting a big boost from the owners of the NBA's Kings franchise.  

KFBK contributor and Sacramento Bee columnist Marcos Breton writes that the Kings ownership is currently involved in investment talks with the owners of the Sacramento Republic soccer team.

Reportedly, the goal is to improve the chances that Sacramento will land one of two expansion franchises planned for by Major League Soccer in 2020.  

Breton says sources close to the deal caution that it will have to make financial sense for the Kings.
