Probably not very likely at all, unfortunately.
Look at Charlotte. From all reports when Rich Cho was hired there, he was going to get a long leash to rebuild properly and ownership would accept a couple losing seasons. Now there were those rumours of the Bobcats being interested in Rudy Gay (WTF). There is no way a GM who is rebuilding goes after Rudy Gay unless there is pressure from ownership to start winning. I envision the same thing probably happening with the Raptors.
