This is 100% the case for Leafs TV. Basically the 2013 season was the last season that Leafs TV had the rights to live broadcast regional games. TSN essentially got the rights to those games 2014 and onwards. This was likely done to appease the Bell Media wing of MLSE after Rogers took over exclusive national NHL rights. Raptors NBA TV was a bit different in its history in that I don't think they ever had live Raptors games but they did source live NBA games from NBA TV in the US and ESPN from the very beginning. They have always had abbreviated rebroadcasts of Raptors games. They abandoned the idea of a Raptors centric regional broadcast channel in 2010 when the channel rebranded as NBA TV Canada. This predated the Rogers/Bell purchase of MLSE which was 2012.If MLSE had sold to anyone else or the teachers pension plan kept the team, Leafs TV and Raptors NBA TV would dominate regional broadcast and they would have a YES or MSG network on their hands.
