Which free-agent destination gives Gordon Hayward the best chance of winning over the next few years?

All eyes are on Hayward, perhaps the best player with a realistic chance of changing teams now that Chris Paul has been traded to the Houston Rockets and taken himself off the market.

Hayward reportedly met with the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat in addition to the incumbent Utah Jazz. While Hayward's decision will depend on many factors, with money possibly not an issue -- Hayward might not be interested in the five-year deal only the Jazz can offer because he's still in his prime -- the ability to win could take on paramount importance.

So, with the help of my multiyear projections, let's take a look at how all three teams project with Hayward.
