Magic center Dwight Howard says he is annoyed by the recent talk about his contract and the possibility he would leave Orlando when he becomes a free agent.

Howard expounded on some recent Twitter comments Tuesday morning at the Magic's practice before Tuesday night's game against the Los Angeles Clippers.

He says his situation should not be compared to what happened with Miami's LeBron James or what is going on with Denver's Carmelo Anthony because they "have nothing to do with Dwight Howard."

Howard says he's "really tired of" the contract talk and that he wants "to help this franchise win a championship."

Howard's current contract runs through the 2012-13 season, but he could utilize an early termination option and become a free agent after next season.
