How is Kanter a poor defender? If the team had Gortat, Kirilenko, Sefolosha, Varejao and Nicolas Batum, would they still have lousy euro-defenders?
Eh follow my TWITTER!
To get back on topic. If Irving is gone before the Raptors draft, do we draft Kanter? Why wouldn't Perry Jones at the 3 be a bad choice. I'd rather have a front line of Jones, Bargnani, Davis going forward over Kanter replacing Bargs...
Outside, of Jones and Kanter. The choices are between 3/4's and I don't know if that's what this team needs...

And obviously I'd rather have 3 talented players than two, but if the Raptors trade Bargnani, I would hope they get some talent back. I'd much rather have a front line of Kanter, Davis/Johnson and Jeff Green (for example) than Bargnani, Davis/Johnson and Perry.
Another player you seem to be forgetting is Terrence Jones. He's a guy who is somewhat the opposite of Perry. He wasn't highly thought of coming in, but has played better than anyone expected through sheer hard work and determination.
Great point about Perry Jones. He hasn't taken over games like a number 1 pick should but the same could be said about a lot of other players. For example, I remember when Rudy Gay was the pre-season number 1 pick before an up and down season gave way to Andrea and Derozan was supposed to be a star in college but struggled until the second half of his sophomore season. If Toronto gets lucky and have the opportunity to select Irving or Jones, Kyrie should be the choice. But if he's gone Jones should be the choice red flags and all. His ceiling is too high to pass up. Like Rudy Gay it's possible that the pro system fits his style better than college and I'd rather miss on a superstar than settle for a good pro (ie Wesley Johnson over Demarcus Cousins)
I know a lot of fans would be happy if Perry became Rudy Gay, but I would be surprised if Gay ever wins a Championship, unless, like Odom, he's a role player.
Depends on who the Euro or non-American was.
Lucas Nogueira is certainly a non-AMerican I would not mind drafting. Most definitely a project but he looks to be the next Ibaka - only bigger and better.
