BPA or Value: What is the right move?

I get the sense that the Wolves would rather draft Kanter than Williams. However by doing so, it would seem that they are leaving value on the board, at least according to some. Speculation is rampant that the Wolves are trying to trade the #2 pick, but what happens if no good trade offers materialize? Should they stick to their guns and take the guy they want, or should they draft for value and hope that better trade options become available in the future?

For the sake of this discussion let's hypothesize that the Wolves are unable to find a preferable deal for #2 prior to (or during) the draft, and that they prefer Kanter, Biyombo, or whoever else more than they do Derrick Williams. Regardless of how you feel about the specific players in this draft, I'm curious on CH's opinion regarding which is the better basketball move?

A) Draft the player that the team feels will best help them (both short and long term), even if that means leaving value on the table.

B) Draft the player with the most value and look to trade after the draft.
