I didn't think that this deserved its own thread, but nbadraft.net did their "State of the Cap: Toronto Raptors"... and they say we still have some cap room. Did they miss a signing?

State of the Cap: Toronto Raptors | NBADraft.net

Also, they gave us an A-

2012/13 Payroll: $53.2 million
2012/13 (Projected) NBA Salary Cap: $58 million
Roughly: $4.8 million under cap
Highlights: Raptors GM Bryan Colangelo has arguably the hardest job in the league. Why? Well, because nobody wants to play for his team. Which makes the work he’s done over the past couple seasons – after understandably overpaying the likes of Hedo Turkoglu, given, as previously noted, that nobody really wants to play in Toronto – all the more impressive, assembling a team that could very well contend for a playoff birth this year while boasting considerable potential should the pieces congeal as hoped.
The Future: Though it’s taken Colangelo longer than expected, he’s finally assembled a core of talented youngsters who play both ends and project to complement each other well. Lowry will bring a much-needed change of pace at the point guard position while DeRozan, Fields and Ross promise solid production on the wing with the potential to produce big time in the future.
