Should the Kings pursue Chris Paul?

Now that Chris Paul has become available for teams to look at trading for, do you think Sacramento would benefit from getting him? 

The team has stated that it wants a star player, a starter, and a first round draft pick. But who is going to offer that? I realize that they can stand pat and not trade Paul but they might as well begin a rebuilding project now seeing as they have a perfectly serviceable point guard in Darren Collison. They'd want us to take on that god-awful contract that Okafor has but he is pretty decent and we could send Dalembert over to pretty much null the basketball perspective of that transaction.

What I'm thinking is:

Hornets

Kings

This gives the Hornets two expiring contracts next year and they can resign Carl Landry (who is relatively young) as well as Dalembert if they like him (for a lot less than his current contract, mind you!). Francisco is the only pill they have to swallow for this to go through in the financial sense. We give them a protected top 10 pick for next year so they can rebuild themselves. They receive some financial flexibility and some building blocks to put around Collison and next year's center crowded draft.

 

The Kings would get a superstar point guard to play next to Tyreke Evans who is still pretty young and we get the same player as we would with Dalembert statistically but a few years younger. We improve from a talent perspective and it clears up PT for our newly acquired players (Hassan Upside and DMC).

 

Just a thought, this is my first post so be gentle.
