The three teams most likely to compete for the services of Gordon Hayward in free agency are the Utah Jazz, Boston Celtics and Miami Heat. A recent report suggested the Celtics are the slight favorite to beat out the other two teams to add Hayward to their already talented roster.
#Celtics slight favorite to land forward Gordon Hayward, per sources. Appeal is to play for a contender, as well as Brad Stevens.

Utah can offer the most money. Miami can offer the best location. Boston however was just the 1 seed in the East and have the top pick in the upcoming NBA Draft. The Celtics give Hayward the chance to be the missing piece on a loaded roster close to contending.
