Is this the first salvo in the war?

After Friday's trade, I'm wondering. The Knicks acquired forward Jalen Rose from Toronto on Friday in exchange for forward Antonio Davis, which on the surface wasn't a terrible move (if you ignore the tremendous financial cost). The Knicks had a surplus of big men and a dearth of small forwards, so exchanging overpaid players to meet their roster needs seems perfectly logical.
