Until he decides to come off his geographical preference, or the Dodgers announce they aren't interested in him at the Marlins' adjusted price tag, or he just decides he'd rather stay in Miami and try again next year, that's where the issue resides. Yes, Stanton has an opt-out after the 2020 season, but the likely outcome is that he plays out his current deal. It is worth noting that Stanton is 28 years old. They also view a team that hasn't necessarily been in the mix as the greatest threat. Since 2012, the Marlins have not had a winning season or have shown signs of improving. With Puig, Bellinger, Joc Pederson, Chris Taylor, and Enrique Hernandez all in the fold, they've also got plenty of outfield options. Given that the Marlins are heavily focused on offloading his contract, the second part of that formulation - i.e., luring Stanton himself - is perhaps the more challenging of the two.
The Marlins are rumored to want significant prospects in a deal for Stanton, in addition to a team willing to take on the majority of his contract.
Well being that Eazy is a Berkeley native, coming to San Francisco would give Stanton the chance to maybe start a bromance with the Bay Area rapper. Both teams reportedly have agreed to the framework of potential deals with Miami. There is no indication, though, that he either is or isn't interested in anything other than a landing spot with the Los Angeles Dodgers, who are better and reside closer to his ancestral home in Panorama City.
