He was solely brought in cause they are brothers. I think since Luke is signed long term the thinking is that Bryadon will take a sweetheart deal to stay and play with his bro.
I think there's 0% chance he was brought here SOLELY because of Brayden. In fact, I think the majority of the reason he was brought here is because he needed a change of scenery, as did JvR, and the Flyers identified defense as a need with Pronger injured. I'd say:

85% need
15% to spark his brother's play/make him more comfortable.
